President Obama announced that Army Gen. Martin Dempsey will be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sealing the overhaul of his national security team.

During a Rose Garden ceremony Monday the president hailed the 40-year veteran as "one of our nation's most respected and combat-tested generals."

Dempsey, an accomplished veteran of the Iraq war, is a graduate of West Point and currently serves as Army chief of staff.
