THREAD: How do Mattis and Shanahan transfer #SecDef authority?

Late on Monday, the Office of the Secretary of Defense communications team will bring Mattis & Shanahan into a phone call, which will be complete by 11:59pm. They don't have to be in the Pentagon for the call. 1/3
The phone call follows an approved script (which DOD can't release). Once the call is complete, DOD will notify the White House that Shanahan has assumed authority as Acting Secretary of Defense. 2/3
The purpose of the call is to ensure all members within government know who is in command. It's also a courtesy and a mark of respect for the incoming #SecDef. And that's how, on Jan. 1, @DepSecDef will walk into work as Acting #SecDef!

Info courtesy of US defense official. 3/3

(11) This President keeps the table behind his desk relatively free of things, but there's a little replica of the FIFA World Cup there now. He's very proud of the USA being the next tournament's co-host. And they're the world's most famous #SoccerDad & #SoccerMom.

I've just been informed by the great .@LeoShane that I did, in fact, screw up Tweet-threading again. My apologies ... so here's everything from #SecDef in one thread:
1: #SecDef spent almost an hour w/ the Pentagon Press before new year. Stories TK, but some takeaways: 1.) Look for more general purpose forces to be trained/used for roles that have drained SF 2.) W/ transgender, he would not single out or issue specific welcome (more) 1/of many
2/many: 3.) #Syria - US role will evolve, more diplomats 4.) CIVCAS: #SecDef took issue w/ Q's on #Yemen CIVCAS #s, cited high degree US precision, added w/ sympathy "the cost of war throughout history is more heavily borne by civilians." Will work w/ Saudis on addtl training
