President Obama is expected to nominate Amb. Ray Mabus to be the next secretary of the Navy, sources tell Military.com.
On Friday, former Navy Secretary Donald Winter resigned as planned, telling Sailors and Marines he was “blessed for having had the opportunity to serve as your secretary” and adding that “no period in my professional life can compare to the experiences that I have had in this position,” according to a Navy release.
