The White House released Thursday the president’s announcement of candidates for possible positions in the administration, including Jette.

He has previous experience in the public sector as strategic science adviser to the Army chief of staff, senior research officer with the Army Research Laboratory as well as founder and director of the Army Rapid Equipping Force.
He served as a brigade and battalion operations officer for some of the Army’s units based in the U.S. and Germany and is a recipient of service awards including the Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit and Bronze Star Medal.
Jette is an alumnus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the United States Military Academy.
The Senate received the nomination and has referred it to the armed services committee Thursday.
