White House: President Obama Nominates New Military Leadership: Generals Joe Dunford and Paul Selva

This afternoon, President Obama nominated Marine General Joseph Dunford to succeed Gen. Martin Dempsey as the next Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman – the principal military advisor to the President and his national security team.

Gen. Dunford served as the Commander of American and Coalition Forces in Afghanistan in 2013 and 2014, and now serves as the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps. President Obama called Gen. Dunford one of the “most admired officers in our military,” and someone whose decision-making he trusts.
