Historic VCNO nomination: Howard would be first woman, first African-American to hold post

Navy Times reports -- President Obama has tapped Vice Adm. Michelle Howard to be the Navy’s vice chief of naval operations, a historic nomination that, if confirmed, would make Howard the first woman and first African-American to hold the Navy’s No. 2 post. She would also be the first black woman to attain four-star rank in the Navy.

Congratulations ma'am, job well done!!

Syneeda, you might want to check the timing. Then, Rear Admiral Howard, was in the secretary's office about the time that you were being railroaded. She could have probably done something about the injustice, but she was probably looking out for number one.

Anon, thanks for the insight. A few years ago I spoke to a senior Public Affairs officer at the Pentagon who was appointed to cover my story, I guess because she's African American. I'm well aware of the conversations that took place on what "angle" the Pentagon should use to protect the careers of a few senior Admirals tied to my case, ie. Adm. Greenert and Adm. Mike Mullen. To suggest that Adm. Howard could have helped me is as far fetch as my case being overturned. Let's face it, when it comes to protecting their careers, reputation and livelihoods, they will stop at nothing!!! Take it from someone who's been a victim of their tyranny.
