Lt. Gen. John Raymond, deputy chief of staff for operations at the U.S. Air Force, has been nominated by President Barack Obama to serve as the next commander of the Air Force Space Command, Air Force Times reported Wednesday.

Phillip Swarts writes Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James announced Raymond’s nomination during a media roundtable event held Wednesday at the Pentagon.

If confirmed by the Senate, Raymond would receive his fourth star and oversee the command that provides military-focused space and cyberspace support for the Joint Force.

He currently leads the service branch’s efforts to develop policies for air, space, cyber, irregular warfare, counter-proliferation, homeland security, and weather operations.

The 32-year Air Force veteran previously served as commander of 14th Air Force and the Joint Functional Component Command for Space.
