Naval Reserve Commander Sean Spicer Continues Service…

Continuing the theme of Presidential administration firsts…

WASHINGTON DC – White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reported, in uniform, to the Pentagon Friday to fulfill his U.S. Navy Reserve duty, a White House official told Fox News.

Spicer reported to fulfill his duty at the Joint Chiefs of Staff offices, a White House official told Fox News. The well-known spokesman holds the rank of commander — which sits just under the higher rank of captain in the Navy.

Spicer, who joined the Navy Reserve nearly 20 years ago while maintaining his primary work as a Republican media operative and strategist, also possesses a master’s degree in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College.

According to the Military Times, Spicer has previously worked as a “media planner in joint exercises in Guam, Germany and Sweden, along with overseeing media coverage of Navy operations in at McMurdo Station in Antarctica.”  (link)

  1. I’ll bet that Trump noticed this when reviewing Press Secretary candidates. Not that it was the deciding criteria, but POTUS likely factored it in higher than others would have.

  8. LOL Yahoo New Feed was reporting that Sean Spicer couldn’t stand the heat as White House Press Secretary. It’s fun watching the most dishonest people in the world get it wrong… all the time. 😉

    Yet, Howard Kurtz is going to cover the “backlash” against Spicer tomorrow morning on his FOX show. Will Kurtz mention that Spicer has reported to duty?

    P.S.: The stripes look like a Lt. Commander rank.

    • Admit it – he could use a little PT!

        Commander Spicer may be an “A” blood type, who have great difficulty metabolizing saturated fat, eg hamburger, which fat ends up in tummy area. If he is “A” blood type, he might take a digestive enzyme to break the fat, or follow his hamburger with a few slices of pineapple, this being the go-to remedy in Italy.

        On the whole, all branches’ officers, except Marines, could use more PT. That’s how the custom for side boys goes. The higher the rank, the higher the weight of the flag officer, therefore requiring more side boys to get his fat ass on board the ship.

    Good for him. He is a good guy. I don’t watch his press conferences, but from what I read its basically a replay of election style partisan hacks asking questions with the only goal to trip him up like the gas situation and/or embarrass the President some how…Nice job Commander Spicer…

    If he’s serving at the Pentagon, his job will probably be to get coffee.

    Actually, they leave that for O-6s to do. I don’t know what they do with O-4s.

    Yes, it’s very obvious why POTUS picked Spicer for press secretary. He knew he could handle the worthless tools we call the MSM.

    Military Times describes him as a “Navy commander”.

    His military career as a public affairs officer includes a master’s degree in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College, and he is currently assigned to the Joint Staff’s naval reserve contingent in Washington, D.C.(Snip)

    In the past, Spicer has worked as a media planner in joint exercises in Guam, Germany and Sweden, along with overseeing media coverage of Navy operations in at McMurdo Station in Antarctica.
