Air Force Gen. Craig R. McKinley has been named a statutory member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to a Pentagon announcement.

With more than 35 years of military experience, McKinley is chief of the National Guard Bureau, where he is responsible for developing and coordinating programs and policies for more than a half-million personnel.

McKinley will advise the Secretary of Defense through the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on National Guard matters. McKinley also advises the secretaries and chiefs of staff of the Army and Air Force.
