Alles retired from military service in 2011, joining the Customs and Border Patrol in 2012. Alles is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he commanded Marine Aircraft Group 11 and Third Marine Aircraft Wing.
Alles served in the Marine Corps for 35 years as a naval aviator, serving as an instructor at the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School - better known as Top Gun - over the course of his career.
And there have also been persistent problems guarding the White House, with the most recent coming when a man scaled the fence and wandered the White House grounds for some 17 minutes before being apprehended. The Secret Service totals more than 6,500 agents and staffers.
The troubled Secret Service, which has been in the news for a number of embarrassing and alarming blunders, is about to get a new leader. The administration purposefully chose Alles because he was outside the ranks of the Secret Service, which has upset former agents, according to a report by Politico.
It looks like President Donald Trump will add yet another Marine Corps general to his team.
Alles will take over from Acting Director William Callahan, who stepped into the post following the retirement of Joseph Clancy last month.
Former agent Patrick O'Carroll, who now serves as director of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, hopes that Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, another Marine general, will fill the position with expediency.
Clancy guided the 151-year-old agency through that period and during the intense 2016 presidential campaign, and his decision to step aside allowed Trump to pick his own director.
Alles inherits an agency that has been dealing with a series of security and personnel issues.
