General Allvin succeeds General Brown, who was confirmed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Senate recently confirmed General David Allvin as U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff. 

“On behalf of the Department of the Air Force, we welcome General Allvin as the 23rd Chief of Staff of the Air Force,” Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall said. “He has guided many of our most important initiatives to improve the Air Force, including recruiting and operations. Kristyn Jones and I have full confidence in his leadership, integrity, and ability to lead the Air Force as we continue our efforts to modernize and overcome the challenges that threaten our continued security and prosperity.”

General Allvin has served in the military for 37 years, with his most recent position being Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force. He also served as the director for strategy, plans, and policy. He served during the Gulf War and the War in Afghanistan and has been awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Legion of Merit, and the Bronze Star Medal. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the Senate as they consider and vote on the president’s nominees to various posts in government.
  • For General Allvin as he assumes his new role in the U.S. Air Force.
  • For wisdom for General C.Q. Brown as he heads the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
