New Air Force Leadership Recommendations Announced

Following the recent resignations of the Chief of Staff of the Air Force and the Secretary of the Air Force, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates has announced his recommendations to fill these positions along with two additional Air Force leadership changes. Gates has recommended Michael Donley to be nominated as Secretary of the Air Force. Donley currently serves as the Director of Administration and Management for the Department of Defense in the Pentagon. Gen Norton Schwartz has been nominated to be the next Air Force Chief of Staff. Gen Schwartz is currently serving as the U.S. Transportation Command. The two additional leadership changes include Gen Duncan McNabb, currently the Air Force Vice Chief of Staff, nominated to take Gen Schwartz position as the new US TRANSCOM Commander; and Lt Gen William Fraser III, to follow Gen McNabb as the next Air Force Vice Chief of Staff. Gen Fraser earlier had been set to follow Gen Schwartz as the next US TRANSCOM Commander who had been scheduled to retire.
