The Army has announced the next commanding general for Fort Sill, but the date for the change of command has not been set.

Major General John Rossi will take over from Major General James McDonald, who took command of the Fires Center of Excellence and Fort Sill in May of 2012.

Rossi comes from the Army Air Defense Artillery Branch, the first from that branch to be commander of Fort Sill. He also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

General McDonald will become commander of the Army Security Assistance Command in Huntsville, Alabama.
