"We’re living in a world that’s evolving,” said General Scaparrotti. "We’re working in a Europe that’s changing everyday and
so we have to be agile, we have to be adaptive,” he added.
During the visits, General Scaparrotti took time to answer questions
during several all-hands calls, participate in a reenlistment and promotion
ceremony and share several meals with service members during which he
expressed appreciation and delivered a special holiday message.
"Thank you all for what you do. Whether you’re first to fight or
first to flight,” said General
Scaparrotti. " As you go into
the holidays I appreciate the fact that you are here and not with your
families. I know you are going to miss your families. I always did too but my
army family was important and I’ve got good memories of every one of my
deployments and I’ll ask you to do the same. Take care of each other and take a
little time to refresh yourself during the holiday season.”
