Rear Adm. Brad Rosen, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and Harvard College, assumed command of Navy Area Southwest this week.
He succeeds Rear Adm. Stephen Barnett within the function informally generally known as “Navy Mayor” of San Diego. The change of command ceremony occurred on Monday at Naval Base Coronado.
Navy Area Southwest covers six states with 10 installations and greater than 76,000 lively obligation personnel.
Rosen stories to San Diego from Washington, the place he served as chief of workers for the Navy Installations Command. That is his first task within the San Diego space.
A local of New Jersey, Rosen is a 1995 graduate of the Naval Academy and obtained a masters diploma in public administration in 2005 from Harvard College’s John F. Kennedy Faculty of Authorities.
A flight officer by coaching, Rosen has served aboard the plane service USS John F. Kennedy, commanded a P-3C anti-submarine squadron and was commander of Naval Station Norfolk.
Barnett strikes to command of each Navy Area Hawaii and Naval Floor Group Center Pacific.
