Princeton hockey alumni General Mark Milley was nominated for the Army’s chief of staff on May 13.
“He not only has plenty of operational and joint experience in Afghanistan, in Iraq and on the Joint Staff, but he also has the intellect and vision to lead change throughout the Army,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told the Army Times.
Per the Army Times, Milley will be the first Army chief of staff with an undergraduate Ivy League degree.
It’s been five years since Zane Kalemba and Kevin Crane pulled on orange and black jerseys for Princeton hockey. But the pair, along with former Division I players Chris Atkinson, Mike Atkinson, Anthony Yelovich and Luke Popko, still gather every summer to play hockey for the Rockets.
