The Pentagon made this announcement:
“Army Maj. Gen. Herbert R. McMaster Jr., for appointment to the rank of lieutenant general and assignment as deputy commanding general, futures/director, Army Capabilities Integration Center, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va. McMaster is currently serving as the commanding general, U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence and Fort Benning, Fort Benning, Ga.”
McMaster is likely happy with all but one part of that announcement. He goes by “H.R.” and has a notorious dislike for his first name, especially in print.
He was assigned to Colorado Springs from 2005-06, but spent the bulk of that period overseas.
During that time, he led Fort Carson troops in the Tal Afar battle, which paved the way for the “clear, hold, build” strategy that American commanders employed for the rest of the Iraq war.
