Biden selects Admiral Lisa Franchetti to become the first woman to be top officer in the Navy

President Joe Biden has chosen Admiral Lisa Franchetti to be the first woman in the Navy’s history and the first woman in the joint chiefs of staff to hold the position of Chief of Naval Operations. Franchetti has an extensive 38-year career and currently serves as the vice chief of naval operations but her confirmation is pending. The Senate’s approval of military nominees, including Franchetti’s, is being delayed by Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s hold in protest of Pentagon reproductive health policies. The delay affects other senior military nominations as well. The Biden administration’s Defense Department has made significant history with its diverse senior leadership, and the president urges the Senate to approve all outstanding military nominees promptly.
