Fires Center of Excellence Change of Command

Major General Wilson A Shoffner assumes command of the Fires Center of Excellence and Fort Sill from Maj. Gen. Brian McKiernan Thursday, Nov. 9. “When I found out that Brian and Sharon were going to be moving, they asked who I wanted to be the next commander here and the choice was very easy and it was immediate,” said Lt. Gen. Michael Lundy, commanding general of the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center. “We need to bring Al Shoffner here. A consummate field artilleryman and he is coming from positions in the pentagon where he has been working the very same issues that he is going to be faced with here.”
