Darryl A. Williams: The Man Who Will Lead the War on Ebola

The man tapped by President Obama to lead the war on Ebola is a long-time Army leader who has experience on the battlefield, in Africa, and the medical arena. Major General Darryl A. Williams just took over command of U.S. Army Africa, in June, and on Tuesday it was announced that he would set up a command center in Monrovia, Liberia, and oversee as many as 3,000 military personnel who will help with training new health workers and setting up new facilities.

"He just arrived today and is now on the ground in Liberia," Obama said of Williams and "Operation Unified Assistance" on Tuesday. "And our forces are going to bring their expertise in command and control, in logistics, in engineering."
