US Approves First Black Air Force Chief of Staff Member

The Senate voted unanimously to approve Gen. Charles Brown, Jr. to be the Air Force’s chief of staff, making him the first black American in US history to sit on the influential Joint Chiefs of Staff. 

The Senate voted 98-0 to approve Brown with senators Bob Casey and Ben Cardin not casting votes. 

Brown was previously the Pacific Air Forces commander following a career in the Air Force that spans more than three decades, and includes commanding a fighter squadron and serving as deputy commander for US Central Command.

With representatives from each military service branch, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where Brown will now serve, collectively advises the president and security councils on military affairs.
