Press Release

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Congressman Roger Williams (R – Austin), who represents Fort Hood, released the following statement after President Donald Trump named Army Chief of Staff General Mark A. Milley to succeed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford:

“I first met Gen. Mark A. Milley when he was named Commanding General of III Corps and Ft. Hood in Texas’ 25th District. Since then, I have come to know him not only as a first-rate military leader, but as a friend. Time and time again, I have called on Gen. Milley for his exceptional guidance on issues that range from the needs of ‘The Great Place,’ to the needs of our soldiers’ families. Unsurprisingly, he has done what is best for our men in women in uniform and kept the welfare of this nation at the forefront of his mind each time. Gen. Milley is the definition of a true American patriot, and President Trump could not have picked a better individual to serve as our country’s highest-ranking military officer.”
