1st Cav general takes reins of TAAC-S


KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - The leadership of Train, Advise, Assist Command - South passed from Brig. Gen. Douglas Gabram to Brig. Gen. Viet Luong Jan. 10 at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan.

Gabram, the outgoing commander, handed over leadership to Luong, who recently deployed from Fort Hood where he serves as the deputy commanding general-maneuver for the U.S. Army's 1st Cavalry Division.

"I am extremely proud and honored to be part of the Combined Joint Task Force - 1 team," Gabram said. "There is no doubt that they have made a lasting impact on our partnered forces, both army and police, and on the citizens of Afghanistan. Every day we have to strive to make it matter for the Afghan national security forces."

TAAC-S's primary mission is to advise Afghan forces and to aid in development of the security and governance of Afghanistan. The unit is comprised of service members drawn mostly from the Army's 1st Cav. Div. and 101st Airborne Division, based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
