Aussie general gets senior post at US Army

Not that odd. Since 1998 one of the two deputy commanders of III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas, has always been a Canadian general:

III Corps (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

III Corps has for many years participated in an exchange program which sees a Canadian Army officer appointed as a Deputy Commanding General. Notably, Peter Devlin deployed with the Corps to Iraq in 2005. As of 2011, the Canadian officer was Brigadier-General Dean Milner.

Who has been replaced by a British Army 1*.
The British brigadier is at the 1st Infantry Division Deputy Commanding General (Transition), 1st Infantry Division. Gen. Walt Natynczyk, outgoing head of the Canadian Defence Staff, was one of the III Corps deputy commanders. His government event allowed him to deploy to Iraq, where he served in that capacity. Not to mention the joint command of NORAD.

I mentioned the "tinfoil hat " bit because a lot of people here are clueless about the depth and breath of the relationship between the ABCA Armies.

I remember sitting in a tent at Camp Beuhring Kuwait in 2004 and getting a rules of engagement briefing from Canadian LTG. in uniform with Canadian flags on his sleeves. Funnily enough we had 2 actual Canadian citizens in our Rifle company, 1 from Kingston, 1 from Toronto. Many a comment was made about securing come Maple leaf flags for their Uniforms.
