US Senate confirmed Gen. Goldfein as next AF chief of staff. Congrats, Dave!

Gen. David L. Goldfein was confirmed by the Senate as the Air Force’s next chief of staff during a confirmation vote June 29. Goldfein testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee during a hearing June 16, before they voted on his confirmation. When he was nominated in April, Goldfein said, “I pledge to serve our Airmen and their families unwaveringly and honor our remarkable heritage and legacy of integrity, service and excellence.” In his previous position as the Air Force’s vice chief of staff, Goldfein presided over the Air Staff and served as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Requirements Oversight Council and Deputy Advisory Working Group. The general received his commission from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1983 and has been assigned to numerous positions around the world. Goldfein is slated to be sworn in at a small ceremony at the Pentagon on July 1.
