General Milley not in Order of Succession within U.S. Department of Defense

On December 10, 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order. The Executive Order lists the order of succession of the U.S. military should the Secretary of Defense die, resign or be unable to perform his duties.  Interestingly, the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staffs, General Mark Milley, is not on the list.

One day later, on December 11, 2020, President Trump issued an Executive Order related to Christmas Eve. This year the President is giving all U.S. government employees Christmas Eve off.  This holiday applies to all employees of the government except those related to “National Security, Defense or other public need.”  This also makes the holiday weekend a four-day weekend instead of three.

  1. Giving government civilian and military employees the day off before Christmas has become routine over the past 20-30 years. However this year, most government Agencies, due to COVID, are having their employees only work every other week, and in some Agencies, every 3rd week, while still getting full pay. Some Agencies, employees are able to work from home. But in Intell Agencies, this is not possible due to security issues. But they still get paid while restaurants, gyms, and salons, in some states are forced to shut down without compensation.

    Not sure the government needs another paid day off.
