This former Ranger was just nominated to be the next Secretary of the Army | Task and Purpose

McCarthy was among the first boots on the ground during the invasion of Afghanistan. After graduating from the Virginia Military Institute, McCarthy went on to serve for five years, deploying to Afghanistan from October 2001-February 2002, and earning three Army Achievement Medals, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Combat Infantryman Badge, Ranger Tab, and Parachutist Badge, among others.

In 2017, McCarthy played a key role in the development of Army Futures Command, the Army’s crown jewel that has hurtled the service into an era of modernization. Retired Army Gen. Peter Chiarelli, former Army Vice Chief of Staff, commended him on that work, calling it “absolutely brilliant.”
