The Washington Post reports that “Major General Austin “Scott” Miller is likely to be the next head of the U.S. military’s secretive Joint Special Operations Command, according to sources close to the matter.”  

“Miller would replace Fort Bragg-based Army Lt. Gen. Raymond Thomas III, who is slotted to lead Special Operations Command out of MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla in the coming months.”  

“A decorated Special Operations soldier, Miller is currently the commanding general of the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence and of Fort Benning, Ga. His most recent billets have pushed him into the public light as the Army’s Ranger School, which falls under his watch, recently graduated the first three women in the storied course’s history.”
