WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today issued this statement on the nomination of General Mark Milley to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and thanked the outgoing Chairman General Joseph Dunford for his dedicated service to our nation.
“The selection of General Mark Milley to serve as the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is a great choice.
“I’ve known General Milley for years and met him on numerous occasions in Afghanistan and Iraq. He’s a battle-tested commander and Pentagon reformer who will be a worthy successor to General Dunford.
“As to General Dunford, he served Presidents Obama and Trump with distinction and has much to be proud of during his tenure as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He’s one of the most dedicated officers I’ve ever known. I wish him well.”
