Keith Kellogg, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general and former director of the C4 directorate at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has been appointed to serve as national security adviser on an acting basis, the White House announced Monday.

President Donald Trump made the appointment shortly after his former national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned amid questions about the latter’s communications with some Russian government officials.

Kellogg served in the Army from 1967 to 2003 and his 36-year military career includes time as commander of the 82nd Airborne Division and two overseas tours during the Vietnam War.

He also held several leadership roles at GovCon firms such as at CACI International, Oracle and Cubic‘s defense segment after he retired from the military, The Guardian reported Tuesday.

The report said Kellogg most recently served as a member of Trump’s transition team and as executive secretary and chief of staff at the National Security Council.
