The Senate voted this week to confirm Jim McPherson as the new Army under secretary, a position he occupied since June in an "acting" capacity.

McPherson previously served as general counsel of the Army and general counsel of the Defense Department's Counterintelligence Field Activity.

McPherson replaces current Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, who last held the post of under secretary.
