Black Women first Female four-star Admiral
The Navy promoted Vice Admiral Michelle Janine Howard to its highest rank on Tuesday, making her the first female four-star admiral in U.S. history. Howard, who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1982 and has served for 32 years, will be the vice chief of naval operations. That makes her the Navy's No. 2 admiral, behind Adm. Jonathan Greenert, who is chief of naval operations. In 1999, Howard became the first African-American women to command a U.S. Navy ship.
CONGRATS!

Should read: "behind Adm. Jonathan Greenert, who is white and chief of naval operations".

She graduated 237 out of a class of 249.

White Sen. John McCain graduated dead last in his class, crashed two fighter jets, got shot down, captured, cheated on his wife with a teenage girl, who is now his wife and an admitted embezzler and drug addict......but you let him become a senator and run for President.

I forgot to mention....he posed for photos with and lobbied to arm terrorists we have to send troops back into Iraq to kill.......

Just hope she can make coffee, because she won't be doing much more. This is an Obama move to install African-Americans throughout government and defense before he leaves. Just look at Eric Holder for abject incompetence.

And we have "deer in the headlights" Mayor Lovely.

She got her 3rd star for devising and executing the plan to save Capt. Phillips and capture the Somali pirates......I'm sure some half-wit like yourself will be making her coffee.
