Australian general gets key US Army post - Article Photos 1/2

In this photo taken Wednesday Jan. 30, 2013, Australia Maj. Gen. Richard Burr, a new U.S. Army Pacific deputy commander, poses for a photo at U.S. Army Pacific headquarters at Fort Shafter, Hawaii. Burr's unprecedented appointment to be deputy commanding general at U.S. Army Pacific is the first time a non-American has served in such a high-ranking position at a command like this. The move symbolizes the Army's push to connect more with allies and friendly nations in the Pacific as the Obama administration rebalances national defense strategy toward the region.
