US special operators in Africa get new boss | Stripes

U.S. special operations troops that conduct some of the military’s most sensitive missions in Africa are under new leadership after Maj. Gen. Marcus Hicks took the helm Thursday of U.S. Africa Command’s elite forces.

Hicks replaces Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc, who will retire after a 32-year military career that took him from private to leadership at the Stuttgart, Germany-based Special Operations Command Africa.

“Long before you were assigned to AFRICOM, your leadership under fire in combat provided inspiration to all of those around you,” AFRICOM’s Gen. Thomas Waldhauser said of Bolduc.
