The president of United States, Joe Bidenhas chosen the admiral Lisa Franchetti to lead the US Army, a choice that, if confirmed, would make her the first woman to lead that division and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Biden has indicated in a statement released by the White House that, as the next head of Naval Operations, Franchetti will contribute 38 years of service dedicated to the nation.
“Throughout her career, she has demonstrated extensive experience in both the operational and policy fields. She was the second woman to reach the rank of four-star admiral in the United States Navy and, when confirmed, she will make history again as the first woman to serve as Chief of Naval Operations and on the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” said that note.
The appointment of the agent must pass the approval of the Senatewhere the Democrats have 48 seats since last January, the Republicans 49 and there are three other independents with a progressive tendency.
Franchetti born 59 years ago in Rochester, New York. He assumed the position of Deputy Chief of Naval Operations in September 2022 and among her positions in the past are that of commander of the US Naval Forces in Korea, deputy commander of those forces in Europe and Africa or director of Strategy, Plans and Policies of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
