The Deputy Assistant to the President and Director, White House Military Office (WHMO), the Honorable Mark V. Rosenker, is an appointed civilian serving as the principal advisor to the White House for all military support.

The WHMO Director oversees the policies that affect the WHMO-wide issues or involve Department of Defense assets.

He ensures that White House requirements are clearly communicated to the WHMO Directorates and meet the highest standards of Presidential quality. The WHMO Director oversees all military operations aboard Air Force One on Presidential missions worldwide.

The Deputy Director of the White House Military Office is traditionally a senior military officer. Captain Michael H. Miller, USN, is the current Deputy Director and the principal advisor to the WHMO Director for all Department of Defense related matters. The Deputy Director's primary focus is the day-to-day support of the WHMO.

The WHMO's operational units are the most visible element of the WHMO's support to the President. The WHMO units include the: White House Communications Agency, Presidential Airlift Group, White House Medical Unit, Camp David, Marine Helicopter Squadron One, Presidential Food Service and the White House Transportation Agency. To assure proper coordination and integration between the WHMO units and our customers the WHMO headquarters organization includes support elements such as operations; policy, plans, and requirements; customer support and organizational development; information technology; financial management; and security staff. Together the WHMO's entities provide essential service to the President as well as help assure the continuity of the Presidency.
