AIA Welcomes Confirmation of General Mark Milley as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Statement by Aerospace Industries Association President and CEO Eric Fanning

Arlington, Va. — Throughout his tenure as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Dunford brought deep experience and principled leadership to the critically important role of commanding the men and women of the U.S. military and advising our nation’s top leaders. We are all grateful for his service.

I had the opportunity to work closely with General Milley in the Department of the Army. He is an immensely qualified critical thinker who will make for an exceptional Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. We are lucky to have Chairman Milley leading our men and women in uniform as the United States confronts a complex web of global threats from land, sea, and air, to cyber and space.
