General Neller is confirmed....and all is quiet....

via USNI News.
Neller, nominated last month, will become the 37th USMC commandant following the brief tenure of Gen. Joseph Dunford. Dunford has been approved by the Senate to replace outgoing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff U.S. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey. Neller is currently commander of U.S. Marine Corps Forces Command and Marine Corps Forces Europe and is set to take over the commandant position next month.

Outside of some people in DC, I haven't heard much about the man....or much about him becoming Commandant of the Marine Corps.

All is quiet in Marine Land.

The churn in Marine Land at the upper reaches of the Corps is severe.  A Commandant that takes office for a little less than a year?  That's barely time to move all your "I love me" awards/gear into your office.  Now he's off to the JCS, Neller is taking his place and we're lining up to see a whole slew of retirements...some unplanned due to this deep selection.

The Corps is in flux.

Considering the world situation....this is a bad time to be flux.
