Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey and Navy Adm. James A. Winnefeld Jr. will be nominated to remain as leaders of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the American Forces Press Service reported Wednesday.

Claudette Roulo writes President Barack Obama’s impending nomination of Demsey and Winnefeld to serve another two years as chairman and vice chairman respectively of the Defense Department body still needs Senate confirmation.

Roulo reports Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Wednesday he looks forward to serving with the military leaders going forward.

“I’m very pleased that, with the concurrence of the United States Senate, I will have the opportunity to work with these two distinguished leaders of our country for another two years,” said Hagel.

The article says both Demsey and Winnefeld assumed their roles in 2011.

“I urge the Senate to re-confirm these outstanding officers as swiftly as possible,” Obama said as quoted in the report.
