Generals Moving on from Third ID

Some big changes in our Coastal Empire military leadership. Two Third Infantry Division commanders are moving on. Yesterday at Fort Stewart, farewells for Brig. Gens. Mark O'Neill and Karl Horst. Both served the Marne Division at home, and for more than a year with the troops in Iraq.

"When you're in combat with the solders, you share a special, special bond," said Gen. Horst. "You've shared mutual hardships; you come together as a team, and when it's time to move on, it's always tough to go."

Both also thanked the communities for supporting them and their soldiers and families through the long deployments overseas and training right here at home.
