The U.S. Senate has confirmed the nomination of Lt. Gen. Darren McDew, 53, to serve as the next commander of the Air Mobility Command, based at Scott Air Force Base.

The Senate on Monday also confirmed a fourth star for McDew, the commander since 2012 of the 18th Air Force, also headquartered at Scott Air Force Base.

McDew will replace Gen. Paul Selva, who has been nominated to serve as the next commander of the U.S. Transportation Command, a joint services command based at Scott.

Once confirmed by the Senate, Selva would replace Gen. William Fraser III, TRASNCOM's current commander
