Jun. 2—FORT DRUM — Maj. Gen. Gregory K. Anderson has been chosen by the Army to lead Fort Drum and its 10th Mountain Division.

The appointment was announced Thursday on the Army's General Officer Management website.

Maj. Gen. Anderson left Fort Drum to serve in his current position of director of operations and cyber, U.S. Africa Command, Germany.

He will succeed Maj. Gen. Milford H. Beagle Jr., who will be leaving Fort Drum to take command of the Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and has been promoted to lieutenant general.

Just like Gen. Anderson, Gen. Beagle also returned to Fort Drum to become its leader.

They were both promoted to the rank of major general last year.
