David Haight - U.S. Army Infantry Officer and USEUCOM Director

With command responsibilities in the U.S. Army spanning more than a decade, David Haight was based in Germany and directed operations of the U.S. European Command (USEUCOM). As an infantry officer prior to becoming a General Officer, David Haight facilitated NATO and U.S. combined, joint, and current military operations across 52 countries within the USEUCOM sphere of responsibility.


Having completed national security and strategic MA studies at the U.S. Naval Command and Staff College, Mr. Haight took command of a 750-man Airborne Battalion in 2002. Over a two-year period, he directed combat operations of a part of the U.S. Strategic Response Force that was among one of the first units deployed in Baghdad as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He managed more than 1,000 combat operations and coordinated the training and recruitment of Iraqi Security Forces.


Mr. Haight commanded another military battalion and was commanding officer of an Afghanistan-deployed infantry brigade combat team from 2007 to 2010. He led half 4,000 Soldiers in regaining control of three extremely volatile provinces. Providing mentorship to Afghan Security Forces, he coordinated efforts that would ultimately bring the country under Afghan security operations lead.
