· Senate Confirms Brown to Lead Air Force in Historic Vote. Senators confirmed Air Force Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. as the first black military service chief in American history in a 98-0 vote June 9. Brown, the decorated four-star general in charge of Pacific Air Forces, will begin his four-year term as Air Force Chief of Staff once he is sworn in on Aug. 6. As Chief of Staff, Brown’s priorities include pursuing joint all-domain command and control, changing how the service works with the defense industry and non-traditional suppliers, using new technology to train Airmen, empowering commanders to make decisions, ensuring space superiority, and establishing flexible logistics. https://www.airforcemag.com/senate-confirms-brown-to-lead-air-force-in-historic-vote/ (10 June 2020)
