FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - The U.S. Army's largest training post is getting a new commander who is a veteran of three deployments in Iraq.
Brigadier General Bradley Becker took command Tuesday in a ceremony at Fort Jackson.
The 49-year-old Becker assumes command from Brigadier General Peggy Combs, who had been called in from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, as Fort Jackson's interim commander after Brigadier General Bryan Roberts was relieved of command in July because of misconduct.
Roberts had been suspended in May over charges of adultery and involvement in a physical altercation.
Fort Jackson puts more than 50,000 new soldiers through basic combat training every year.
