President Donald Trump has nominated the Army chief of staff to head the Pentagon's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Department of Defense revealed Tuesday that Trump picked Army Gen. Mark Milley to serve as chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He would replace Marine Gen Joseph Dunford, whose two-year term ends in October.

The Associated Press reported in December that Trump was planning to nominate Milley for the position.

Also on Tuesday, Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan confirmed Trump picked Air Force Gen. John Hyten to serve as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. That job is currently held by Air Force Gen. Paul Selva.
