GRAFENWOEHR, Germany— Brig. Gen. Christopher Norrie took command of the 7th Army Training Command on Tuesday.

The unit is the Army’s largest training command outside the United States and oversees the four brigades permanently based in Europe, in addition to overseeing training efforts across the Continent.

“We will remain focused on training lethal and ready brigades here in Europe,” Norrie said after taking command during a ceremony in Grafenwoehr. He served as the deputy commanding general (maneuver) of the 1st Cavalry Division based in Fort Hood, Texas.

Brig. Gen. Christopher LaNeve, the previous commander, will go to the Pentagon to serve as director of operations, readiness and mobilization at the Office of the Army’s Deputy Chief of Staff.
