GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — Brig. Gen. Christopher LaNeve assumed command of the 7th Army Training Command on Friday, as Brig. Gen. Tony Aguto relinquished authority of the Army’s largest training command in Europe.

LaNeve most recently served as the deputy commander for operations with the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, N.C.

The 7th Army Training Command oversees several installations throughout Europe, the Joint Multinational Readiness Center, the 7th Army NCO Academy, and the Joint Multinational Training Group in Ukraine.

“I’m ready to be part of this team,” LaNeve said at the change of command ceremony.

Aguto, who held command of 7ATC for two years, said he will miss living in Germany, and serving as part of U.S. Army Europe.

“I think this is a great command, and a great location,” Aguto said.
