US officials say President Donald Trump will nominate the Army chief of staff, Gen. Mark Milley, as his next top military adviser. The next chairman will serve for four years, instead of two years.

President Trump announced Saturday morning that he will tap Gen Mark Milley (above) to be his next top military adviser.

Milley will be the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to serve a single 4-year term.

He says: "I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession".

Milley who holds degrees from Princeton University and Columbia University, is known to be liked by Trump. More recently, he has worked with his senior officers to reverse a shortfall in Army recruiting when the service fell far short of its annual goal this year.

From Baikonur started the spaceship "Soyuz" with the ISS
This is the first spaceflight for both McClain and Saint-Jacques and the fourth trip to the space station for Kononenko. The spacecraft made four orbits over six hours as it chased down the space station for the docking.

Milley made the early decision to charge Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He has served in command and leadership positions, including in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The expected departure would end a tumultuous tenure for Kelly, who was brought on to bring order to the White House but whose time as chief of staff has often been marked by the same infighting and controversy that has largely defined Trump's presidency from its beginning.

Mr. Trump re-nominated him in 2017 for a second term.

The general became chief of staff of the Army in 2015 after serving at the commander of Army Forces in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
