Lt. Gen. Robert Brown, U.S. Army Combined Arms Center commander, is the possible successor of Gen. Vincent Brooks as Army Pacific Command leader as the latter awaits Senate confirmation to take charge of U.S. military forces in Korea, Defense News reported Monday.

Jen Judson writes the Army needs to appoint a four-star general for the Army Pacific Command post and Brown is the only general with a fourth star that is pending approval from the Senate.

Once confirmed, Brooks would succeed Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti whose nomination to become NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe is also pending confirmation, Judson wrote.
