Obama nominates first openly gay Army secretary

Obama continues his mission to provide more Americans the chance for opportunities. Since the reversal of many anti-gay rules within the military, the armed forces have become a more tolerable branch of government. This has made life easier for servicemen like defense and national security specialist Eric fanning, who after 25 years of working in Congress and the Pentagon, has been nominated for Army secretary, making him the first openly gay person to help lead one of the country's armed forces. If the Senate approves Fanning, he will work with top Army general, Mark Milley, to improve the nation's largest military branch.
