As of 7th July 2016, Colonel Andrew L. Miltner has taken over responsibility as the new Chief of Staff of the Joint CBRN Defence Centre of Excellence. With more than 30 years of military experience in the United States Army and a solid background as CBRN Defence Officer, he is the perfect person to take over this challenging position. He has already moved to the Czech Republic and will stay here for a regular tour of three years. The CoE-Staff wishes him and his wife Sonmi all the best for their time in Moravia, and Andrew in particular a lot of success in his new responsibility.
