The Navy has gained its very first female four-star admiral. Her name is Michelle Janine Howard and she was promoted, on Tuesday to the Navy's highest rank. There was a ceremony held at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at the Arlington National Cemetary, in Arlington Va.
Michelle will serve as the vice chief of naval operations. This will make her the No. 2 admiral in the Navy behind Adm. Jonathan Greenert who is the chief of naval operations.
Ms. Howard has performed duties in the US Navy for the past thirty-two years. She graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1982. She is historically, also the first African-American female to command a Navy ship.
WE SALUTE YOU MICHELLE JANINE HOWARD!!!!!
