Use the more direct form - (appointed vs appointment) - eliminate A/B. Also, 'that' is more appropriate than 'as' to introduce 'he was appointed'.
D & E are incorrect because the modifier introduced by 'that' seems to be modifying 'Joint Chiefs of Staff' instead of the 'dedication'. Leaves you with C.
