U.S. Army’s top logistics officer earns third star
The U.S. Senate confirmed this week the promotion of Maj. Gen. Kathleen M. Gainey, commander of the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, to the rank of lieutenant general.
Gainey will be assigned as director for logistics within the Joint Staff in Washington. The date has yet to be determined.
Gainey took over operations at the SDDC on Oct. 6, 2006. The command officially relocated its headquarters from Alexandria, Va. to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois on Aug. 14, 2007.
