New Chairman for the JCS?
Barbara Starr is reporting that President Barack Obama could announce his pick for the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff this week. The front runner remains General Joseph Dunford, currently the commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps and a former commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. Looks like we will all become Red Sox fans in the very near future. Perhaps we will see the "Boston Mafia" that reigned in Afghanistan the last few years make more rank in the services! Warning: If you are briefing him and you got a New England accent he will query you on your knowledge of the BoSox! See the CNN story (April 27, 2015).
