Maj. Gen. Richard LongoMaj. Gen. Richard Longo, deputy commander of the U.S. Army Europe, has retired from military service and will be replaced by Maj. Gen. Walter Piatt, Stars and Stripes reported Tuesday.

Eric Brown reports that Longo was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal during his retirement ceremony held earlier this week in Wiesbaden, Germany.

“The world and our Army have changed significantly over 34 years of his service, and I would make the case that changes and advances are in large part due to innovative, engaged, and positive leadership,” said Maj. Gen. Donald Campbell Jr., commander of USAREUR.

Longo began his military career in 1980 with the 333rd Field Artillery in Germany and has previously held the positions of U.S. Army Pacific chief of staff, Combined Joint Inter-Agency Task Force – Afghanistan commander and Operation Iraqi Freedom 1st Infantry Division artillery commander.

He was named USAREUR deputy commander in June 2013.
