The Pentagon announced today that after four months on the job, Air Force Maj. Gen. James Hunt, the head of the service's Quadrennial Defense Review efforts in the office of the assistant vice chief of staff, is being reassigned to become the next deputy commanding general of Multi-National Corps-Iraq.

Hunt has been the Air Force's QDR director since November 2008, according to his official bio:

General Hunt is responsible for the development of Air Force policy, concepts, analysis and strategy for the next QDR. His organization continually re-orients the department's capabilities and forces to be more agile in times of war, prepare for wider asymmetric challenges, and mitigate risk against uncertainty over the next 20 years.

In the same statement, the Pentagon also said Air Force Maj. Gen. Duane Jones, director of global combat support in the office of the deputy chief of staff for logistics, installations and mission support, would become the office's next director of resource integration.

According to his bio, Jones' current directorate "is responsible for integrating expeditionary combat support and is the focal point for all cross-functional ECS-related issues."
