U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Mike Miller is retiring as superintendent of the Naval Academy after 40 years of continuous active duty, handing over command to Vice Adm. Ted Carter, Navy Times reported Wednesday.

Meghann Myers writes that Carter, former president of the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, will start at his new post on Aug. 20.

“Our training, our facilities and our curriculum must evolve rapidly, include further development of cyber education, among many other fields,” Carter said of the academy’s response to technological advancements and other challenges.

Miller, the longest-serving Navy admiral, was honored at a change-of-command ceremony headed by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Adm. Jon Greenert, chief of naval operations.

He was awarded the Defense Superior Service Medal for his military service.

Since his appointment to the academy in 2010, Miller has enforced compliance on its finances and accounting as well as led planning on the construction of the Cyber Center of Security to begin in 2016.
