He assumed the vice chairman role in July 2015 after he previously commanded the U.S. Transportation Command and the Air Mobility Command and served as vice commander of Pacific Air Forces.

The 37-year Air Force veteran has pushed for military modernization and innovation as the second highest-ranking officer in the country’s armed forces.
