Gen. Eric Smith, a new commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, was hospitalized on Sunday due to an undisclosed medical emergency.

There is no information available on his condition or what might have happened.

“Out of respect for the expressed wishes of the family, we will not provide any further details on the medical condition of General Smith at this time,” Maj. Jim Stenger said. (Trending: Obama’s Ignorant Remarks On Israel)

The Marine Corps has not named a permanent second in command due to Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s ongoing blockade of President Joe Biden’s military appointees.

Without a second in command, Marine Lt. Gen. Karsten Heckl will serve as the acting commandant for the Corps until Smith returns to the role.

Smith has served as a Marine for 36 years and is also a member of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff.
