Will US Gen. Mark Milley Keep His Job As Joint Chiefs Chairman?

When he became commander in chief, President Joe Biden wasted no time replacing the military service secretaries and acting head of the Defense Department. If he wanted, he could also name a replacement for Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley, who came under scrutiny under President Donald Trump for participating in a politically loaded photo op. 

But Milley's likely to keep his spot -- and experts say it would be bad for the nation if he doesn't. 

It's unlikely there will be a shake-up to the Joint Chiefs, The Associated Press reported last month, though an unnamed Pentagon official told the Responsible Statecraft, a publication of the Quincy Institute think tank, that Milley could be asked to retire early so that newly minted Air Force Chief of Staff Gen.

WNU Editor: Joint Chiefs Chairman Army Gen. Mark Milley has over 2 years left in his term. I would not be surprised if he is "asked" to retire early.

He sure wants to keep it. He's busy saying all the correct things. Busy doing all the correct actions. Definitely a political creature of the Pentagon.

But he took orders from the big bad evil orange man. He's out.

Will an admiral in the next 4 years tell Congressman Hank Johnson that "No, Guam will not tip over?"

Just as well Milley is gone. On top of being a suck up, he is not brave nor very intelligent.

Milley is more towards the 100 part of the scale than the 140 part of the scale. Nothing special.
