Judge said he was once a student at Fort Benning and that after nearly twenty years, he is humbled to return and is ready to lead the 199th and continue its legacy. “I believe that legacy is not about me,” said Judge. “It’s about those we leave behind. And what better to instill a legacy but to ensure that I give back to the force.”

The reviewing officer and Maneuver Center of Excellence Commander Maj. Gen. Eric J. Wesley said the 199th Infantry Brigade is the pilot light of change in terms of how we fight.

Judge expressed that his vision of the 199th will continue to produce the finest leaders, combat ready and resolved to win in a complex world.

Judge received his Infantry commission from the United State Military Academy in 1993. His most recent assignment was serving as the Chief of Operations at Combined Joint Task Force, Operation Inherent Resolve in Kuwait.

Streeter’s next assignment is at U.S. Africa Command in Stuttgart, Germany.

The 199th Infantry Brigade trains future leaders in various Programs of Instruction including Basic Officer Leaders courses, Maneuver Captains Career Course, the Henry Caro Noncommissioned Officer Academy and International Military Student Office.
