   The NATO alliance is getting a new supreme commander this week, a former 
top-ranking U.S. military officer in Korea who has been described by Defense 
Secretary Ash Carter as a proven warrior-diplomat and "a soldiers' general."

   BRUSSELS (AP) -- The NATO alliance is getting a new supreme commander this 
week, a former top-ranking U.S. military officer in Korea who has been 
described by Defense Secretary Ash Carter as a proven warrior-diplomat and "a 
soldiers' general."

   U.S. Army Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti was installed Tuesday as head of U.S. 
European Command, and will become NATO's supreme allied commander Europe 
following a separate ceremony Wednesday at alliance military headquarters in 
southern Belgium.

   Scaparrotti, 60, will become the 18th U.S. officer to hold the post since 
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower became the first NATO SACEUR in 1951. The commander 
is responsible for the overall direction and conduct of global military 
operations for the 28-nation NATO alliance, which now faces multiple security 
challenges ranging from a resurgent Russia to armed Islamic extremism.
