The Navy Times reports that a new president is set to be installed by the U.S. Naval War College.
Replacing Rear Adm. James “Phil” Wisecup as president is Rear Adm. John N. Christenson. A change of command ceremony is set to be conducted on Wednesday, at the college, in Newport, Rhode Island.
Rear Adm. Wisecup served as president since November 28, and is moving on to serve as the Navy’s inspector general.
Rear Adm. Christenson, on the other hand, has been with the military for 30 years. His most recent designation is that of head of the Board of Inspection and Survey of the United States Navy, a role that includes inspecting ships to ensure that these are properly equipped.
