Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Mullen announced assignments Monday for two one-star admirals who will fill billets as the Navy's chief of information and program executive officer for aircraft carriers.

Rear Adm. Select Michael McMahon will replace Rear Adm. David Architzel as PEO carriers, after Architzel was nominated last month for a third star and a new assignment as the deputy to Navy acquisition czar Delores Etter. McMahon is currently working as supervisor of shipbuilding, conversion and repair in Newport News, Va.

Rear Adm. Frank Thorp will replace Rear Adm. Greg Smith as the Navy's top spokesman. Since May, Smith has served in Iraq on Army Gen. David Petraeus' communications staff at Multi-National Forces-Iraq. Originally, Smith was scheduled to be in Iraq a few months, but his tour was extended through May 2008. Right now, Thorp is deputy assistant secretary of defense for joint communications in the Defense Department public affairs office.

Thorp served as the chief spokesman for U.S. Central Command forward-deployed in Qatar and as the spokesman for former CNO Adm. Vern Clark.
