SECNAV Kicks Off NWC Current Strategy Forum
Mabus, who was sworn in as the 75th secretary of the Navy on May 19, reflected on his position nearly a month after his initial swearing-in.
"I never dreamed I would be standing here when I began my naval service nearly four decades ago as a junior Surface Warfare Officer," Mabus told the audience in Newport. More recently, Mabus served as the governor of Mississippi and the Ambassador to Saudi Arabia.
"I am proud beyond words to finally return home to the Department of the Navy," Mabus told forum participants.
