FORT BLISS, Texas (KVIA) -- Ft. Bliss' top commander, Maj. Gen. Jim Isenhower, is leaving the post.

Ft. Bliss officials confirm to ABC-7 that Isenhower's last day will be July 11, 2024. The change of command ceremony will happen that day. Isenhower will hand over command to Maj. Gen. Curtis Taylor.

"Isenhower will serve his next assignment as the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3/5/7, United States Army, Washington, D.C." Fort Bliss officials explained Thursday.

Taylor graduated from West Point in 1994 and has since served two tours in Afghanistan and two tours in Iraq.
