Lt. Gen. John R. Allen (G’83)
Future commander of U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan
Lt. Gen. John R. Allen was recently appointed
to take command of the war in Afghanistan, succeeding Army Gen. David Petraeus. Lauded as a strategic thinker, Allen likely will be tasked with reducing troop levels and handing over responsibility to Afghan security forces. He is a graduate of the national security studies master’s program and if confirmed by the Senate this summer, would be the first Marine to take the helm in Afghanistan or Iraq.
