WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2008 – The Senate today confirmed two Air Force generals nominated by President Bush for key positions.

Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, commander of U.S. Transportation Command, will be Air Force chief of staff, Gen. Duncan J. McNabb, Air Force vice chief of staff, will succeed Schwartz as TransCom commander.

Schwartz will succeed Gen. T. Michael Moseley as the Air Force’s top officer. Moseley stepped down in June in the wake of a report critical of the Air Force’s handling of its nuclear weapons program.
