Michelle Janine Howard is the first African American Woman to be a 4-star admiral.

Michelle Janine Howard is the first African American Woman to command operational forces of the U.S. Naval Forces Europe and U.S. Naval Forces Africa.

Michelle J Howard has held so many commands and has gotten so many awards for her service. She also played an important role in rescuing Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates. She’s a great current example for all of us, and she’s still serving her country at 56 years old. I wonder how many more “firsts” she will achieve before she retires.
