DOD Deputy Chief of Staff Resigns

President Trump updating senior DOD leadership. 

The Defense Department announced on Friday that the Deputy Chief of Staff for the Secretary of Defense had turned in her resignation. This comes less than a week after President Trump terminated former Defense Secretary Mark Esper. The reason for that dismissal stemmed from the military’s reluctance to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. 

The DOD also confirmed that retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor would be Senior Advisor to the acting Defense Secretary saying, “Mr. Macgregor’s decades of military experience will be used to assist in the continued implementation of the President’s national security priorities.” The Senate will take up the approval process within the next few weeks.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would help the Pentagon bring greater peace to the world. 
  • For the Lord to lead the Trump Administration in the final days of 2020.
  • That the Senate would have wisdom on the best nominees to confirm to the Defense Department.
