Change of command at Fort Bliss

Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 9:46pm

Fort Bliss has a new leader. The post said farewell Thursday to Major General Dana Pittard, and hello to General Sean MacFarland. General MacFarland is no stranger to Fort Bliss. He's been stationed here three times. His wife is also from El Paso.

"I think you're going to find him to be a good leader, that he will continue the programs General Pittard has had and to improve the training programs we have. the quality of life programs. I've learned already he has a wonderful sense of humor. It's low key but very effective and direct in how he deals with and relates to the soldiers and their family," said Col. Patrick Matlock.

General MacFarland will address the media for the first time tomorrow.
