Congrats to Lt. j.g. swegle'>Madeline Swegle, for becoming the @USNavy ’s first Black female tactical aircraft pilot. This is a historic milestone for naval aviation. I am hopeful that her example will inspire other young women to follow in her footsteps.
From one Navy pilot to another, congratulations Lt. j.g. swegle'>Madeline Swegle on becoming the Navy’s first Black female fighter pilot. The Navy — and our nation — are safer with you in the air protecting us.
