Admiral Michelle Howard On Her Navy Achievement

Admiral Michelle Howard On Her Navy Achievement

Yesterday, Admiral Howard was officially promoted to her new rank as vice chief of naval operations, the No. 2 officer in the Navy. She’s both the first woman and the first African-American to do the job. 

We’re proud to feature Admiral Howard in our upcoming Women in Military documentary. She will join groundbreaking military women and MAKERS such as Angela Salinas, the first woman in the Marine Corps to command a recruiting station, and Pat Foote, the first female Deputy Inspector General of the Army.
