New Joint Chiefs chair to be named

President Barack Obama on Monday will nominate Gen. Martin Dempsey, the relatively new Army chief of staff, to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to a source familiar with the plans. The term of the current chairman Adm. Michael Mullen ends in September.

Obama will also name Adm. James Winnefeld, the current head of the U.S. Northern Command, to serve as vice chairman, according to the source.

Gen. Ray Odierno will be nominated to replace Dempsey as the Army's chief of staff, the source added.
