According to media reports Saturday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reported, in uniform, to the Pentagon Friday to fulfill his U.S. Navy Reserve duty.
As reported by 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.
Fox News adds:
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.”
President Trump was in Mar-a-Lago Friday with his wife, Melania, and a lean staff. Spicer, like many other senior aides, stayed behind in Washington for the Easter weekend.
