With retirement near after 39 years of military service — the last three as worrier-in-chief about global threats to U.S. security — Gen. C. Robert Kehler ought to finally get some untroubled sleep.
There's plenty to worry about when you are the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, whose job it is to anticipate and defend against catastrophes inflicted by America's enemies. After three years on the job, he will hand over that portfolio Friday to Adm. Cecil Haney, a former deputy StratCom commander who most recently led the Navy's Pacific Fleet.
