President Obama Nominates Michelle Howard to Vice Chief of Naval Operations

President Obama nominated Vice Admiral Michelle Howard to be the vice chief of naval operations.

On Friday, President Obama nominated Vice Admiral Michelle Howard to be the vice chief of naval operations. If confirmed, Howard will not only be the first woman to become a full admiral, but will also be the first woman and the first African-American to hold the Navy’s number 2 position.

This isn’t Howard’s first time breaking the glass ceiling. She was the first African-American woman to command a U.S. Navy warship, as well as the first to command an expeditionary strike group at sea. She was also the first female Naval Academy graduate to become a rear-admiral.
