Gen. Mark MilleyPresident Donald Trump made it official Saturday, saying he will nominate Army Gen. Mark Milley as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the military's highest-ranking officer.

If confirmed by the Senate, Milley would replace Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford whose second, two-year term expires in 2019.

"I am thankful to both of these incredible men for their service to our Country!" Trump said in making the announcement by tweet. "Date of transition to be determined."

Milley has been a member of the Joint Chiefs since August 2015 when he took over as the Army's top officer. A career infantryman, Milley has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and commanded conventional and Special Forces units.
