“The Air Force has its 23rd secretary after the Senate confirmed Deborah Lee James by a 79 to 6 vote on Friday,” Defense One reports.

“She is the second female secretary for the military branch, which has been under Congressional scrutiny this year for its handling of sexual assaults.”

The Military Times notes James touched on the issue during her confirmation hearing: “Command is an honor and a privilege in this country, it’s not an entitlement, and those who do not live up to our values simply need to be removed from that command.”
