The Senate has approved the reappointment of U.S. Air Force Gen. Paul Selva for another two-year term as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Defense News reported Monday.

Senators reconfirmed Selva through a voice vote held Monday, two weeks after he sailed through a nomination hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

He assumed the vice chairman role in July 2015 after he previously commanded the U.S. Transportation Command and the Air Mobility Command and served as vice commander of Pacific Air Forces.

The 37-year Air Force veteran has pushed for military modernization and innovation as the second highest-ranking officer in the country’s armed forces.
