Sam Fellman has been promoted to managing editor of Navy Times.

Fellman, 33, a 2002 Naval Academy graduate, served as a surface warfare officer aboard the destroyer Higgins and aircraft carrier Nimitz, deploying twice to the Persian Gulf. He also served in Iraq during the surge as a battle captain with a counter-rocket battery in Baghdad.

He left the Navy as a lieutenant after six years and, in 2010, earned a master’s degree in journalism at Columbia University.

He took a writing position at Navy Times in 2010 and became a senior writer two years later, covering a range of topics and stories such as the first women to earn their submarine ‘dolphins’ pin, the rollout of the new flame-resistant coveralls, the mistakes that led to the minesweeper Guardian shipwreck, recognizing the Navy’s real oldest salts, and the former sailor-turned-troubadour who penned an ode to fraternization.

Fellman replaces Tony Lombardo, who became managing editor of Army Times on Jan. 5.
