Army swears in new vice chief of staff

Gen. Lloyd J. Austin was sworn in as the Army's 33rd vice chief of staff at a ceremony at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall on Jan. 31.

"Lloyd Austin is, as he always has been, a full-spectrum leader," Secretary of the Army John McHugh said, according to the Pentagram Newspaper. "[He is] a leader that at every level of command has demonstrated to his troops the right way to lead, the right way to live as a soldier."

Austin served as the last commanding general of United States Forces in Iraq and leader of Operation New Dawn. He replaces Gen. Peter Chiarelli who retired from the Army after 40 years.
