Milley confirmed for 3rd star, command of III Corps
Looks like I’ve got a new Corps Commander. Congratulations to MG Mark Milley on his selection as the III Corps CG and promotion to LTG. Milley replaces Gen Don Campbell, Jr. as he heads to Germany to take command of U.S. Army Europe and Seventh Army.
The U.S. Senate confirmed Maj. Gen. Mark A. Milley’s appointment to the rank of lieutenant general and his follow-on assignment as III Corps commander Dec. 3.
Milley will assume command of III Corps in an assumption of command ceremony 10 a.m. Dec. 20 at the III Corps Headquarters flagpole, here.
Milley relinquished command of the 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, N.Y., to Maj. Gen. Stephen J. Townsend during a change of command ceremony Dec. 3.
Prior to the outdoor ceremony, Milley will be promoted to lieutenant general in a ceremony in the West Atrium of the III Corps Headquarters.
Media desiring to cover the assumption of command should register here no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 18. The gate time is 9:15 am at the south-side parking lot of the visitor’s center.
