Chiefs of Staff
“We’ve been given about a year to demonstrate both that we will treat this with the urgency that it deserves and that we can turn the trend lines in a more positive direction,” Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters April 11.
But, he added: “If it occurs that after a period of very intense and renewed emphasis on this that we can’t solve it, I’m not going to fight it being taken away from us.”
