Trump has named retired four-star United States Marine Corps General John F. Kelly to head the Department of Homeland Security. Kelly has spent nearly his entire life in the U.S. militar7 (1970-1972, 1976-2016).
According to WaPo, Kelly is a "blunt-spoken border security hawk" who has opposed the closure of Guantanamo Bay detention center.
Kelly has personally felt the ultimate burden of military service - his youngest son died in battle during his 2010 tour in Afghanistan.
