It is noted that for the first time this post will be occupied by a black military man. None of the senators voted against Brown’s candidacy.

With Brown’s appointment, the African American will again be a member of the US Chiefs of Staff Committee since 1993, when Colin Powell, who later became Secretary of State, became its chairman, the article says.

Brown is a four-star Air Force general. Prior to being appointed chief of staff, he headed the Indo-Pacific Command of the US Armed Forces and was deputy head of the Central Command (CENTCOM) of the US Armed Forces.
