(My new American Thinker post)
No such service happened here. This is an appointment based on woke not anything else. I'm sure that the new Admiral Levine accomplished something in his or her career. I'm not trying to be a jerk here. No doubt that his/her appointment is not about military service but rather checking off another box in the identity politics page.
Would a man with a similar background been made a 4-star Admiral? I don't think so.

Toby Harrah was born on this day in West Virginia and broke with the old Senators before they moved to Texas for the 1972 season. He was a member of that very first Rangers' team managed by Ted Williams.
