MG Miller assumes command of Maneuver Center of Excellence PDF Print E-mail

FORT BENNING, GA - A new commanding general has taken his place in the ranks in Fort Benning's leadership.  MG Scott Miller assumed command of the Maneuver Center of Excellence and Fort Benning from MG H.R. McMaster during a ceremony at 8 a.m., Friday, July 11, on the parade field behind the National Infantry Museum.  "As I come in here today, I'm about as excited about this assignment as I've been about any assignment in the US Military," Miller said just before the ceremony. "I'm a old infantryman, so I've been coming here since 1981. But when you look at Fort Benning Georgia, and a good assignment…  it comes down to people, it comes down to mission, and of course the community. And when you put all three of those together here in Columbus, Georgia—outside our gates and inside the gates—you've got one fantastic assignment."   Miiller is a 1983 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N. Y., and a graduate of the Marine Corps University, where he earned a Master of Science degree in Strategy. His military schooling includes the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

What WP's class of 1968 can teach the Class of 2018 PDF Print E-mail

Morning, June 30, 1964:  I said good-bye to my dad, mom, and younger sister in our home in South Philadelphia.  I walked the few paces to 2nd Street, turned left, walked to the next corner, caught the Number 5 to 3rd and Market, walked down to 2nd Street, caught the subway to 30th Street, took the train to NYC's Penn Station, walked up 8th Avenue to Port Authority, caught the bus which wound up the west shore of the Hudson to West Point's gate. When I walked through that door, my life changed forever as I joined what would become West Point's Class of 1968. My involvement with West Point's Class of 2018 started several months ago. My class has been planning a 50-Year Affiliation Program, associating us with these young men and women as they endured the gauntlet culminating in entrance ("reception") on July 2, and thereafter.
