Michelle Howard, vice chief of Naval Operations, spoke with the Naval and Marine Corps elements on Fort Leavenworth today. Howard is the first woman to earn the rank of four-star admiral in the U.S. Navy, as well as the first African-American women to attain the rank of four-star in any service. She was promoted to that rank when she stepped into the role of 38th Vice Chief of Naval Operations, the second most senior officer in the U.S. Navy.
