Rachel Levine sworn in as first openly transgender four-star admiral
Guess I missed this in March.
Or I went blind.
[FoxNews] U.S. Assistant Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine became the first openly transgender four-star officer in the uniformed services on Tuesday after she was sworn in as the first female four-star admiral of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.
The Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday that Levine was ceremonially sworn in as a four-star admiral, making her the highest ranking official in the commissioned corps and leading 6,000 Public Health Service officers.
The former Pennsylvania health secretary became the nation's highest-ranking openly transgender official in March after being nominated by President Biden.
