Kevin P. Byrnes, commanding general of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), "in a rare disciplinary act against a four-star officer," was relieved of his command August 9, 2005, a position which he had held since November 2002, "in the midst of an investigation into unspecified 'personal conduct.'" "With the departure of Byrnes, the deputy commander of Training and Doctrine Command, Lt. Gen. Anthony R. Jones, has been designated the acting commander." 
As head of TRADOC, "Byrnes oversaw all Army training programs and the development of war-fighting guidelines. [TRADOC] operates 33 training schools and centers on 16 Army installations and is headquartered at Fort Monroe, Va."
