Navy Times is reporting the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, has submitted her resignation. Can’t say I’m sorry to see her go.
Who will replace her? I have a couple of suggestions,
- former Commandant Thad Allen we all know, and
- my other candidate is Larry Korb, assistant secretary of defense (manpower, reserve affairs, installations, and logistics) from 1981 through 1985 under Reagan, a former naval aviator who retired from the Navy Reserve as a Captain, and a man with a long association with the Coast Guard including teaching at the Academy.
