Craddock Press Conference Today in Pristina

Brig. Gen. John Craddock, commander of Task Force Falcon in Kosovo, will conduct a press conference at the KFOR Press Information Center in Pristina, Kosovo, at 10 a.m. EDT today. We will attempt to get a live audio feed of the conference piped back to the Pentagon, and if successful, it will be available in the Pentagon Press Briefing Room 2E781 and on Pentagon television cable channel 13.

Craddock relinquishes command of the task force Thursday, and returns to Germany to take command of the 7th Army Training Command in Grafenwoehr, Germany. Replacing Craddock will be Brig. Gen. Craig Peterson, who was formerly chief of staff of the First Armored Division at Bad Kreuznach, Germany.
