The Naval Sea Forces has said its New Years Eve celebration will include a salute to Admiral James Stix, the Navy’s first female Chief of Naval Operations, and a toast to the life of Admiral James “Hawk” Martin.
“In a nation that values the tradition of military service, it is important that we honour those who have made such a mark on the nation,” the statement said.
Stix was the first female admiral to command a Navy vessel and commanded the USS George Washington during World War II.
She was the third woman to command the USS Oklahoma and the first to command an aircraft carrier, according to the Naval Historical Center.
The statement said the New Years event will include “a salute to the Navy, Admiral Stix’s personal life and leadership, and his role in the promotion of equality in the United States military and in our society at large.”
A ceremony for the service of Admiral Stitz will be held at the New Orleans Naval Shipyard, the statement added.
Admiral Stix has served as the commanding officer of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower from 2009 to 2021.
Her retirement was announced on April 3, 2021, after spending the past 15 years serving aboard the Washington.
This year marks the 70-year anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
The United States is the only country that does not have an equal rights legislation on the books.
On Thursday, the Pentagon announced a milestone in the fight against gender-based violence.
The Office of the Under Secretary for Policy and Strategy announced the Pentagon’s agreement to end the “systematic and discriminatory” practice of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) barring men and women from the same military jobs.
“The Department of the Navy will no longer prohibit men and men from military service based on gender identity,” the announcement said.
Men are allowed to join the Navy as cadets and in some cases, as captains, and women are allowed in the military as warrant officers.
However, the DoD’s policy of excluding men from positions of leadership in the armed forces remains in place.
Under the agreement announced Thursday, if the DoL allows men to join, a senior leadership member will have to sign a declaration stating that they will not serve on any board or commission.
The DoD also must take steps to remove all discriminatory or discriminatory conditions and policies from any of its programs, including hiring and promotion boards, promotions, and other career pathways.
Additionally, if a gender-neutral promotion is authorized, the U:s Chief of Staff, the Chief of the Marine Corps, and one of the Chief Information Officers of the Armed Forces will sign the same declaration and agree that they are not to serve on a board or Commission of a military department.
The Pentagon is also requiring all service members who want to be assigned to positions of authority in the Navy to sign the statement, and must report to the DoE’s Chief of Personnel office and submit a letter from the chief that states the gender-related restrictions.
