PEO Soldier BG Cummings Biography

BG Cummings is an Infantry officer who has been in the Acquisition Corps since 1994. Really, this a welcome home for General Cummings who is no stranger to the Soldier Systems community having served with TRADOC System Manager Soldier before there was even a PEO Soldier, followed by several positions in PEO Soldier including service as Product Manager Ground Soldier System. He is a great choice for the position of PEO Soldier with an excellent mixture of relevant acquisitions and operations experience.

Due to the nature of the Acquisition system, this is known as a change of charter rather than a change of command. This time, there was very short notice of BG Cummings’ move to PEO Soldier with about a month between the announcement and Change of Charter. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a formal announcement from PEO Soldier regarding the change. We only happened upon the actual event based on a Facebook posting regarding BG Cummings award of the Legion of Merit prior to his move from Deputy PEO Combat Support & Combat Service Support to PEO Soldier.

We wish General Cummings good luck as he assumes his new roll and hope to hear more about his direction for PEO Soldier. There’s a lot going on. It’s an exciting time in the soldier systems world.
