U.S. Army to replace CID chief. The Army has decided to replace the commander of its Criminal Investigation Command less than a year after naming Maj. Gen. Donna Martin to the position, Defense One’s Tara Copp reports. Martin became provost marshal general of the Army and commanding general of Army Criminal Investigation Command last July, just 10 days after Spc. Vanessa Guillen’s body was found outside Fort Hood, Texas.
Her replacement: Martin will be replaced by Brig. Gen. Duane Miller, who is currently deputy provost marshal general and deputy commanding general of CID, Miller confirmed to Defense One in a phone interview.
Sudden turnover. It’s the second time in as many years that the Army has replaced its top law enforcement officer, Copp writes. “Since 1971, CID has been led by only 15 commanding generals, most of whom served three years or longer. Martin replaced Maj. Gen. Kevin Vereen, who also served only a year in the post.”
When she was a One Star...now MG Martin was the Deputy Commander of Recruiting Command. I remember covering her visits to my Brigade when I was stationed here at Knox.
According to The Hill this is part of the fallout from the Spc. Vanessa Guillen murder case at Ft. Hood.
