On Tuesday the White House announced the nomination of General James McConville to be the next Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army (CSA). In his current position as Vice Chief of Staff, McConville has been helping to lead the charge on Army modernization. Along with current CSA General Mark Milley, Army Secretary Mark Esper and Under Secretary Ryan McCarthy, McConville has been personally and daily managing the effort to transform the Army into a 21st Century fighting force. With McConville’s elevation, and that of General Milley to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff it is all but certain that the drive for dramatic change, not just in the Army but across all the Services, will continue. I have written more on the significance of General McConville’s nomination here.
