New Commandant nominee

Lt Gen David Berger has been nominated by POTUS as the next CMC. His bio calls out Recon and SOTG tours. Anyone have any insight on if he will be a good choice as Commandant?

2nd Force and III MEF SOTG, I'm pretty sure that SB served under him, I never have but I've heard good shit about him.

I never served with him and he's too young to have been my boss at III SOTG.

I think SB might have been at Tun Tavern. ;-)

He was at 2nd Recon Bn in 89 while I was at Force. I haven't talked with anyone who've actually served with him.

I'm hopeful to have a CMC who puts the Infantry at the forefront. Would also like to see the 0321 MOS get more funding and official support.

Not sure if his answer on integrating Boot Camp was for his audience (Senate confirmation hearings) or if he really feels this way. The new SgtMaj MC was named last week, I'd like to hear his take on it.
