President Joe Biden plans to nominate Adm. Linda Fagan to be the next commandant of the Coast Guard. If confirmed, she would be the first woman to lead a military service branch.

Since June 2021, Fagan has served as the vice commandant, the service's No. 2 position. At the time, she became the first woman to become a four-star admiral in the Coast Guard.

USNI News first reported that Fagan will be nominatedfor the top job. Members of the Senate Commerce Committee later confirmed the news.

“Admiral Fagan’s nomination will inspire generations of American women to strive to serve at the highest level in the Armed Forces,” Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), chair of the Senate Commerce Committee, said in a tweet.

This is significant news. Congrats and good luck to Admiral Fagan.

A woman? What is the definition of a woman?

How will we know this is actually true, because it could be a man hiding in a skirt.

Can democrats inform us if this is fake news?
