Maj. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III will be the next commanding general of Fort Stewart and the Third Infantry Division, the Department of Defense announced Thursday.
Cucolo will succeed Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch, whose two-year tour of duty ends this summer.
Cucolo will be coming to Fort Stewart from the Pentagon where he is chief of public affairs for the Army.
The new commander has served at Fort Stewart before. He was a staff officer and then a company commander here from 1985 to 1988. Cucolo has also led a brigade of the 3rd ID. From 1999 to 2001 he was commander of the 3rd ID's 3rd Brigade which is stationed at Fort Benning.
A mid-summer change-of command ceremony is expected.
