The Secret Service will have a military man at the helm for the first time in modern history, it has been reported.

According to the Washington Examiner, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general and former head of U.S. Central Command, is preparing to name a senior armed forces officer to the agency’s top job.

The move is seen as a bid to impose rigorous discipline and help the Secret Service recover from morale- and image-busting White House intrusions in recent days.

Employees are expecting an announcement in the next week, the Examiner reported.

The last full-time Secret Service director, former agent Joseph Clancy, retired on March 3 – for the second time – and left an ‘acting director,’ William Callahan, as a caretaker in the role.
