Gen. Charles Flynn, the younger brother of Michael Flynn, took command of the United States Army Pacific on Friday, aiming to prioritize the unit to face the challenges brought on by China.
Flynn, 57, overtook the leadership from Gen. Paul LaCamera, who will move to command U.S. Forces Korea. The general arrived in Hawaii from Washington, D.C., where he served as the deputy chief of staff for Army operations, plans, and training since June 2019.
“Today, as China trends on an increasingly concerning path, presenting challenge to the free and open Pacific, the Army is charged to change once more,” Flynn said during a livestreamed ceremony at Fort Shafter.
Adm. John Aquilino, who heads the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, said he expects Flynn to “execute the integrated deterrence” for a free and open Indo-Pacific when welcoming the general to Hawaii, according to a report by Stars and Stripes.
