In an appearance on ABC7’s Government Matters on January 2, Lexington Institute Senior Vice President Dr. Dan Goure explained the circumstances surrounding President Trump’s upcoming elevation of Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Goure echoed his recent RealClearDefense article, “Why General Mark Milley and Why Now?” in his comments, calling the Army head an “agent of change.”
Akin to President Trump, he said, Milley seeks to revolutionize the way the military fights. He laid out this idea in his December RealClearDefense piece:
Perhaps it is because much like President Trump, Milley too is a visionary. Early in his tenure, he argued that how the Army would fight in the future had to change. Milley warned that “we are on the cusp of a fundamental change in the character of ground warfare.” The Chief of Staff has made it clear he wants to lead that change, not follow in its wake. He has even gone farther, embracing the idea of radical transformation of the Army and, inevitably, all the armed services.
