Air Force Lt. Gen. Roger A. Brady has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as commander of U.S. Air Forces Europe and be promoted to the rank of general.

The confirmation took place Wednesday, according to USAFE’s public affairs office.

Brady’s last day as the Air Force’s top personnel leader is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 9, with his first day in the Europe job to begin Jan. 11, Pentagon spokesman Capt. Tom Wenz said.

In his role as deputy chief of staff for personnel, Brady serves as the senior Air Force officer responsible for comprehensive plans and policies covering all life cycles of military and civilian personnel management. That includes military and civilian end-strength management, education and training, and compensation and resource allocation, according to his biography.

Brady entered the Air Force in 1969 through the University of Oklahoma ROTC program, his biography states.
