About Lloyd Austin, US Secretary of Defense

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lloyd_Austin

Lloyd James Austin III (born August 8, 1953) is an American retired Army four-star general who served as the 12th commander of United States Central Command (CENTCOM). Austin was the first black commander of CENTCOM.

Before CENTCOM, Austin was the 33rd vice chief of staff of the United States Army from January 31, 2012, to March 22, 2013, and the last commanding general of United States Forces – Iraq Operation New Dawn, which ended on December 18, 2011. He retired from the armed services in 2016, and subsequently served on the boards of Raytheon Technologies, Nucor, and Tenet Healthcare.

On December 7, 2020, it was reported that Austin would be nominated to serve as Secretary of Defense in the Biden administration. His nomination was confirmed on January 22, 2021.

Family

Raised by a devout Catholic mother, Austin still practices the faith. He has been described as an "intensely private" man who loathed talking to the news media when he was in Iraq and has a habit of "referring to himself in the third person".

Austin and his wife, Charlene D. Austin, have been married for over 40 years. Charlene has worked as a non-profit administrator and served the board of the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University. They have two sons.
