President Trump earlier this month tapped Gregory Slavonic to be the acting Navy under secretary, according to a June 26 service statement.

Slavonic was previously the assistant Navy secretary for manpower and reserve affairs since June 2018.

Prior to being a senior civilian, Slavonic served as a rear admiral in the Navy reserve and as chief of staff for Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) while the senator was a congressman.
