SURFPAC Observes Women’s History Month

SURFPAC Women's History Month celebration

The staff of Commander Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (SURFPAC) gathered today to pay tribute to generations of women and their invaluable commitment to the military during Women’s History Month.

This year’s national theme, “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives,” was interpreted by a volunteer SURFPAC committee who acted out narratives of the female experience.

Vice Adm. Tom Rowden, Commander of Naval Surface Forces, shared his experiences of being part of the third graduating class to commission female officers at the United States Naval Academy. One of his classmates was Adm. Michelle Howard, Vice Chief of Naval Operations, who currently holds the second-highest rank of commissioned officers.
