General Mark A. Milley '80 became the Army's 39th Chief of Staff in August 2015 after serving as Commmander of U.S. Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. A native of Winchester, Massachusetts, he graduated and received his commission from Princeton University in 1980 and has had multiple command staff positions throughout the last 35 years, including deployments to Operation Just Cause, Panama, Operation Joint Endeavor, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Operation Iraqi Freedom, Iraq.
General Milley received the Woodrow Wilson Award on Alumni Day in 2016. This is Princeton University's highest honor for undergraduate alumni.
