The Forward yesterday profiles Air Force General Norton Schwartz who earlier this week was chosen by Defense Secretary Robert Gates to be the new Air Force Chief of Staff. The appointment is subject to Senate confirmation. Schwartz, who is Jewish, will inherit issues at the Air Force Academy relating to Christian proselytizing of students and failure to accommodate needs of non-Christian cadets.
