Obama nominates first openly gay military service chief

No military service but Fanning held Head of Air force for 7 months before being replaced in 2013. President Barack Obama is nominating longtime Pentagon official Eric Fanning to be the Army's new secretary. Wonder if he will hold this position for longer then 7 months.

The U.S. Senate has confirmed Eric Fanning to the position of Secretary of the Army, making him the highest ranking openly gay member of the Department of Defense.

RAINBOW POWER: Barack Obama, in another one of his evils "firsts", has just nominated an openly-gay civilian LGBT man to run the United States Army. Eric Fanning is out, proud, and about to take over the Army if the nomination holds up. Do you approve or disapprove of Obama's nomination? http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=35663
