Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Fort Hood re­ceived a new leader Thurs­day as Lt. Gen. Mark Mil­ley be­came the post’s new­est com­man­der in a cer­e­mony in front of the head­quar­ters of the III Corps com­mand group.

Mil­ley, who was pro­moted from the rank of ma­jor gen­eral shortly be­fore the cer­e­mony, re­places Lt. Gen. Don­ald Camp­bell, who left Fort Hood last month to head U.S. Army Europe and Sev­enth Army in Ger­many.

Mil­ley pre­vi­ously com­manded Fort Drum, N.Y., and has led de­ploy­ments to both Iraq and Afghanistan. A 1980 grad­u­ate of Prince­ton Univer­sity and na­tive of Winch­ester, Mass., Mil­ley has also served as joint op­er­a­tions di­vi­sion chief on the Joint Staff in Washington, D.C., and mil­i­tary as­sis­tant to Sec­re­tary of De­fense Robert Gates.
