Security Force Assistance Command changes commanders at Fort Bragg

FORT BRAGG — The Security Force Assistance Command welcomed back one commander to Fort Bragg this month, as Army leaders thanked the command’s outgoing commander for his contributions.

Maj. Gen. Scott Jackson relinquished command to Maj. Gen. Donn Hill during a May 16 ceremony at Fort Bragg.  

The Security Force Assistance Command oversees five regular Army brigades and one National Guard brigade, said Maj. Gen. Michael Garrett, U.S. Army Forces Command commander and the reviewing officer for the ceremony.  

The command was activated at Fort Bragg in November 2018. 

Army leaders have previously said the command’s specialized units have a core mission to conduct training, advise and assist operations with partner nations to allow their forces to secure themselves against threats. 

The mission has freed up soldiers in conventional brigade combat teams, who were previously doing the job.
