Army Gen. David Petraeus, who served as the top U.S. commander in Iraq
and Afghanistan, ended his military career Wednesday to take the reins
at the CIA.

“Our journey with the U.S. military has been amazing
one,” he said, speaking for himself and his wife Holly at his retirement
ceremony after 37 years in the Army. The ceremony was held at Joint
Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.

He added that the journey
was not coming to an end, “even though we’re about to begin an exciting
new journey with another extraordinary organization.”
