Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley assumed command of the International Security Assistance Force Joint Command from Lt. Gen. James L. Terry during a ceremony presided over by ISAF Commander, U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., at IJC’s Kabul, Afghanistan, International Airport headquarters Thursday.

Milley, commander of III Corps and Fort Hood, and about 500 troopers of the Phantom Corps will spend the next year in Afghanistan overseeing all operations in theater.

Terry, commander of the Wiesbaden, Germany-based U.S. Army V Corps, served as IJC commander and deputy commander of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan since June 12.

IJC is responsible for the day-to-day planning and operations of the coalition efforts in Afghanistan. The command is responsible for forming essential partnerships with the Afghan National Security Forces and supporting improved governance and development in order to protect the Afghan people and provide a secure environment for sustainable peace.
