Keane retired in 2003 and now appears frequently on Fox News to discuss foreign policy and defend President Trump's foreign policy decisions.
President Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Jack Keane, a retired four-star Army general and senior strategic analyst for Fox News, the White House said Wednesday.
Trump will award the medal to Keane next week, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. The award represents the U.S.'s highest civilian honor.
“General Jack Keane is a retired four-star general, former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, and a well-respected foreign policy and national security expert,” Grisham said.
“General Keane has devoted his life to keeping America safe and strong, and he has earned many awards, including two Defense Distinguished Service Medals, five Legions of Merit, two Army Distinguished Service Medals, the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and the Ronald Reagan Peace through Strength Award,” she continued.
