Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Mark Milley will become the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
President Trump made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday.
“I am pleased to announce my nomination of four-star Gen. Mark Milley, Chief of Staff of the United States Army — as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing General Joe Dunford, who will be retiring,” Trump wrote. “I am thankful to both of these incredible men for their service to our Country! Date of transition to be determined.”
He hinted then that he would have an announcement related to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, saying, “I have another one for tomorrow that I’m going to be announcing at the Army-Navy game,” Trump said. “I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession.”
