Miller named new AF Reserve deputy chief


WASHINGTON —  Miller & Miller sounds like the name of a law firm, but, actually, it’s going to be the Air Force Reserve’s new senior leadership team at the Pentagon.

On Friday the Reserve announced that Maj. Gen. Ronald B. “Bruce” Miller has been selected to be the next deputy to the chief of the Air Force Reserve, Headquarters, U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C.

He will team with Maj. Gen. Maryanne Miller, who, earlier this month, President Barack Obama nominated for a third star and assignment as chief of Air Force Reserve and commander, Air Force Reserve Command. Maryanne Miller currently serves in the deputy chief position under Lt. Gen. James F. Jackson.

Both changes will take effect in July when Jackson retires.

Bruce Miller is now the mobilization assistant to the chief of Air Force Reserve in Washington. He assists in the management of all Air Force Reserve units around the world.

The general received his commission through the Reserve Officer Training Corps after graduating from the University of South Carolina. He is a command pilot with more than 3,300 flying hours in the T-37 Tweet, T-38 Talon, A/OA-10 Thunderbolt II and F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft.
