President Trump Congratulates New Joint Chiefs Chair Mark Milley
New head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff takes office
WASHINGTON – New head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff warned America’s adversaries against underestimating the “skill, capability and combat strength” of the US military.
Army General Mark Millie was sworn in on Monday in the presence of US President Donald Trump. After that, he said that the United States will remain the “first fighting force” in the world..
“You deserve this position. I never had any doubts about this, “Trump said..
A Princeton and Columbia University graduate, Millie, who has a history of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, will officially become the committee chairman on Tuesday.
The current head, Marine General Joseph Dunford, has served four years in this position and begins the retirement process after more than 40 years of military service..
Speaking at Monday’s ceremony, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that Dunford “will leave behind a legacy of strong leadership, discretion and genuine humility that will stay with us and will continue to inspire us long after he leaves.”.
As the president’s top military adviser, Dunford will be remembered for how he fought the Islamic State terrorist organization, his actions related to the conflict in Afghanistan, and his military strengthening in a quest to stay ahead of his closest competitors – Russia and China..
Experts also pay tribute to Dunphod for his calm, firm leadership in keeping the United States out of conflict with North Korea..
“We went through 2017, through all these statements about "full readiness", "fire and fury", about the fact that "my button is bigger than yours". All this balancing act had to be endured and not let us get dragged into the war, and I think Dunford played a role in that too, ”says Michael O’Hanlon, an expert at Brookins Institute in Washington..
Milli assumes office as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff amid escalating tensions with Iran and escalating violence in Afghanistan.
