As CNO, he served as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He advised the president and the secretary of defense on a range of matters, including U.S. and global maritime security, overall naval operations and budget, and the positioning of Navy bases, ships and aircraft.
Previously, he was in charge of four Navy fleet commands and commanded the nuclear-powered submarine USS Honolulu.
