In a ceremony held Sept. 3 at Fort Belvoir, Va., Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno swore in Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon as commander of Army Cyber Command.

Cardon previously served as commanding general of the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. Prior to that, he was deputy commanding general for support for U.S. Forces-Iraq. That appointment was the last of Cardon’s several commanding positions in and deployments to Iraq.

According to his bio, Cardon was born in Texas and raised in California, and has received roughly a dozen decorations for his service since being commissioned as an engineer officer from the U.S. Military Academy in 1982.

Cardon succeeds Maj. Gen. Rhett Hernandez, who is retiring, as head of Army Cyber Command/2nd Army.
