WEST POINT — West Point cadets will be getting a new commandant.

The Army chief of staff says June 13 that Brig. Gen. John C. Thomson III will be assigned commandant of cadets at the U.S. Military Academy. Thomson is currently deputy commanding general for support for the 4 Infantry Division at Fort Carson, Colorado.

The commandant is one of the top officials at West Point and is in charge of military programs and day-to-day operations of the cadets. The commandant serves under West Point's superintendent.

Thomson graduated from West Point in 1986.

He will succeed Brigadier Gen. Richard D. Clarke at a time to be determined.
