Maj. Gen. Robert “Bo” Dyess, the acting director for the Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) under the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), announced during a Feb. 7 Senate Armed Services subcommittee hearing that he will retire from his post later this spring.

“On a personal note, in a couple months I’m going to be retiring after 36 years of service,” Dyess said after reading his testimony on Army modernization. After thanking to committee for its work, he added, “I’d also like to request a final push on the budget to provide for the common defense of our great nation.”

Maj. Gen. John George will succeed Dyess as deputy director, an ARCIC spokesperson confirmed to FCW. Maj. Gen. Eric Wesley will assume directorship of ARCIC. Wesley currently serves as the commanding general at the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning in Georgia.

Details on Dyess’ last day or when successors will take over their new positions have not yet been released.
