Former House District 32 Representative and Democrat Juan Garcia has been nominated to be Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Manpower and Reserve Affairs) by President Obama.
Garcia needs to be confirmed by the Senate Armed Services Committee and the full Senate before his new position becomes official.
Caller-Times: Garcia, if confirmed, would oversee the office responsible for the recruiting, development and retaining of Navy and Marine Corps personnel. According to the Navy, the assistant secretary develops human resources policies and programs, advises senior Navy leaders on the implications of policy decisions affecting personnel, evaluates and analyzes the impact of policy and delivery of programs, and judges personnel decisions on behalf of the Navy secretary.

From all of us here at Burnt Orange Report, congratulations! We expect Garcia to do an excellent job (and of course, to find his way back to Texas after his service is complete)!
