FORT HOOD — Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley left his post at III Corps with a “job well done,” said Gen. Daniel B. Allyn, commander of U.S. Army Forces Command.

“For Lt. Gen. Mark Milley and his wife, Hollyanne, this day marks not only a new beginning, but it also symbolizes the conclusion of another tremendous chapter in the corps’ storied history,” said Allyn, who served as the reviewing officer of the Phantom Corps’ command-change ceremony Friday at III Corps Headquarters.
