U.S. Army Central boss Lt. Gen. Michael Garrett has been nominated to take the helm at the Fort Bragg-based Army Forces Command, according to a nomination received by the Senate on Jan. 9.

Garrett has been nominated for a fourth star to take the job vacated in November by Gen. Robert Abrams, now the commander of U.S. Forces-Korea.

“While we can confirm that the U.S. Senate received Lt. Gen. Garrett’s nomination from the president on January 9, 2019, neither the U.S. Army nor Department of Defense controls promotions and future assignments for general officers,” Col. Angela Funaro, spokeswoman for ARCENT, told Army Times on Wednesday.

A Senate confirmation hearing has not been scheduled.

Garrett has commanded ARCENT, at Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, since November 2015. An infantry officer and Xavier University graduate, his recent assignments have included chief of staff of U.S. Central Command and commanding general of U.S. Army Alaska.
