Major General David Haight also served as Director of Operations for the U.S. European Command (EUCOM), coordinating army, all other military and interagency operations throughout 52 countries in Europe in conjunction with NATO allies and other partner nations.

EUCOM was formed after the end of World War II and is able to perform a comprehensive array of military operations in cooperation with its European allies to protect the national interest of the U.S. and in support of a free and peaceful Europe. Headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, the command orchestrates the operations of over 100,000 military and civilian personnel in an area covering 10.7 million square miles of land and 13 million square miles of sea, having a combined 23.7 million square miles of total airspace.

In geographic terms this means all of Europe, significant parts of Asia, and portions of the Middle East, as well as the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. This area of responsibility spans close to one-fifth of the globe, with a population approaching one billion people.
