New commander installed at post
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.
