Lt. Gen. Robert Neller, former commander of the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Central Command, has been chosen to lead the Marine Corps Forces Command and Marine Corps Forces Europe following the retirement of Lt. Gen. R.T. Tryon, The Virginian-Pilot reported Tuesday.

Kara Driscoll writes the change-of-command ceremony was held at the Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia and led by Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps.

According to Amos, Neller will be responsible for “a lot of heavy lifting” as the Forces Command oversees the global deployment of at least 50,000 Marines.

Neller will also be in charge of Marines deployed in Europe, with headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.
