Lt. Gen. Rainy assumes command of CSTC-A

Army Lt. Gen. James Rainey became one of the most important generals of NATO’s Resolute Support mission on Friday as he took over the command of Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan.

CTSC-A is one of the largest commands in Afghanistan. Rainey told a crowd of about 100 Afghan, NATO coalition and U.S. military and civilian leaders at a ceremony closed to the media, that  ” can promise you that every day I am here, you will get 100 percent of what I’ve got.” His statements were later released.

Lt. Gen. Rainy takes over the command from Maj. Gen. Robin Fontes, who held the highest position of any female servicemember in the war.
