The Navy announced yesterday it hired former enlisted Marine John Kroger as its first "chief learning officer" to oversee the service's educational programs, following one of the recommendations from a study completed last year by Navy Under Secretary Thomas Modly.

As the Navy secretary's assistant, he’ll oversee efforts across the United States Naval Academy, Naval War College, Marine Corps University and the Naval Postgraduate School.

Kroger was previously a visiting professor at Harvard Law School, president of Reed College in Portland, OR, and Oregon attorney general.
