President Bush on Friday nominated Marine Gen. Peter Pace, who has played a key role in shaping strategy in the war on terrorism, to serve as chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff.Here's a question: what is the Chairman going to do about the Lt. Pantano situation?
Bush said Pace "knows the job well" having served as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff since 2001. "This is a huge task, even in peace time," Bush added.
Once confirmed by the Senate, Pace, 59, would become the first Marine Corps officer to serve as chairman -- the highest ranking U.S. military officer and principal military adviser to the president and defense secretary.

Marine to be top U.S. military officer!
They may be a small service, but their impact is huge. And, now, the President has nominated a Marine to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
