Dr. Rachel Levine made history on Tuesday when she was sworn in as an admiral to the US Public Health Service. “I am honored to serve as the first female four-star officer of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and the first openly transgender four-star officer to serve across any of the eight uniformed services,” Levine said at the swearing-in ceremony.
Dr. Rachel Levine, the nation’s most senior transgender official, made history again Tuesday by becoming the first openly transgender four-star officer across any of the country’s eight uniformed services.
Rachel Levine will be sworn as the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer. Her new role puts her at the forefront of deploying a public health workforce in demand more than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What people are saying?
ADM Rachel Levine I am deeply honored & grateful to join the ranks of men & women across this great nation who have committed to defend the United States against small & large threats, known and unknown. I promise to uphold that trust to the fullest extent of my abilities.
Jason K Wait, I’m genuinely confused…Was she in the US Navy or something? Was she a captain? What is she the admiral of? I thought there were only 5 branches of the armed forces (Space Force as six)… Where did these other ones come from?
