Vice Adm. Michelle Howard was nominated for reappointment to the rank of vice admiral today by President Obama, a move that allows three-star officers to serve longer than 38 years without being promoted.

Howard was nominated to serve as the deputy chief of naval operations for operations, plans and strategy in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon in Washington. She currently serves as the deputy commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk, Va.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the nomination and new assignment in a Defense Department news release.
