But wait, there are more top-shelf 4-star jobs.
Chairman JCS: Marines.
Vice Charman: Navy.
And the latest.....
President Bush today nominated Navy Vice Adm. Eric T. Olson to lead U.S. Special Operations Command, replacing Army Gen. Bryan "Doug" Brown, according to a Pentagon release.What am I missing? Does it matter? Navy/Marine Corps team gets 7 out of 11. Not sure what it says, if anything - but I do find it funny in a way. After all, everyone of a certain age knows that 7/11 gets you super-rock cups.
Olson would be the first Navy officer to head Socom. The command is responsible for about 48,000 elite troops, such as Army Green Berets, Rangers, Delta Force operatives, Navy SEALs and Air Force rescue teams. Olson is now Socom's deputy commander.
