    Gen John Kelly to Retire

    Marine Corps Times: http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/stor...tire/74541404/

    Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, one of the U.S. military's longest serving commanders and the most senior officer since 9/11 to lose a child in combat, will retire later this year.

    The White House intends to nominate Navy Vice Adm. Kurt Tidd to replace Kelly as head of U.S. Southern Command in Miami, a senior Defense Department official confirmed for Military Times. Tidd's nomination and Kelly's expected retirement were first reported by the Miami Herald.

    I shook GEN Kelly's hand once and heard him give an address to an infantry gathering, the man is direct, no bullshit and not one to shirk from an issue. I left feeling like I could take on the world.

    I served for VADM Tidd during my first Navy deployment, a very, VERY intelligent Naval officer & gentleman.
