FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - The Army says Brigadier General Bradley Becker will take over as the commander at Fort Jackson in a ceremony August 27th.
Becker will assume command from Brigadier General Peggy Combs, who will return to her position as commandant of the Army's chemical school at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
She has been interim commander at Fort Jackson since Brigadier General Bryan Roberts was relieved of command earlier this month because of misconduct.
Becker joined the Army as a second lieutenant in 1986. He is assistant deputy director for joint training in Suffolk, Virginia.
Becker has been deployed three times to Iraq and served in Saudi Arabia for Operation Desert Storm.
He also has served in Germany and South Korea.
