Trump Attends Army-Navy Game With New Joint Chiefs Nominee Milley

General Mark Milley, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, speaks at the National Press Club, July 27, 2017 in Washington, DC.

US President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he would nominate four-star Army General Mark Milley to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "I am thankful to both of these incredible men for their service to our Country!" he said.

Trump hinted the announcement would be coming earlier Friday when he said he would be making an announcement at the Army-Navy football game he will be attending Saturday in Philadelphia.

If confirmed, Milley will replace Marine Corps Gen. Joseph "Fighting Joe" Dunford.

President Barack Obama, during his time in office, announced his nominations for chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff five months before they took the role.

Dunford is a Marine Corps general.

Milley stepped into the role as Army Chief of Staff at a time when the US was ending over a decade of counter-insurgency operations in Afghanistan and re-aligning the military to focus more on near-peer competitors like China and Russian Federation.

The commander-in-chief hinted Friday he meant to make the personnel announcement during the Army-Navy football game he will attend in Philadelphia Saturday. The next chairman will serve for four years, instead of two years. As of Friday, all indications were that Dunford will serve the rest of his term. "I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession", he said.

Milley who holds degrees from Princeton University and Columbia University, is known to be liked by Trump. Previous year he admonished the House Armed Services Committee for its inability to approve a defense budget, slamming it as "professional malpractice". He also worked to improve the Army's readiness.

Milley also served as a Green Beret, one of the US Army's most elite teams.

Milley made the early decision to charge Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Trump also will pick a replacement for Milley as Army chief.
