    Biden for the first time in history nominated a woman to the post of commander in chief of the US Navy

    Published on

    US President Joe Biden nominated Admiral Lisa Franchetti for the post of Chief of Staff of the US Navy. The corresponding statement was published on the website of the White House on July 21.

    It is noted that a woman is nominated for this post for the first time in American history. Her candidacy will be considered by the US Senate.

    “She is the second woman in history to reach the rank of four-star admiral in the US Navy. If her candidacy is approved, she will again go down in history as the first woman to serve as Chief of Staff of the Navy and on the Committee of Chiefs of Staff (USAF. – Ed.),” the statement said.

    Franchetti currently serves as Deputy Chief of Staff of the US Navy.

    Biden also nominated Vice Admiral James Kilby to the post of Deputy Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Samuel Paparo to the post of head of the Indo-Pacific Command of the US Armed Forces, and Vice Admiral Steven Keiller to the post of commander of the Navy in the Pacific.

    The American President called on the upper house of Congress to approve these personnel appointments as soon as possible.Not happy to serve: US military lacks recruits Threat of shortfall forces Pentagon to offer record bonuses and lower recruitment criteria
