NAVIFOR’s Kelly Aeschbach Nominated for Rear Admiral Rank Promotion

Kelly Aeschbach

President Barack Obama has recommended that Kelly Aeschbach, chief of staff for the Naval Information Forces, be promoted from the rank of captain to rear admiral (lower half) in the U.S. Navy, the Defense Department announced Friday.

The Pentagon renamed Navy Information Dominance Forces as Naval Information Forces earlier this year in a move to reflect the adoption of the “information warfare” concept.

Aeschbach previously worked as commanding officer of Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic in Norfolk, Virginia.

She also held positions at the Joint Intelligence Center Pacific; Tactical Training Group Pacific; Naval Personnel Command; U.S. Naval Forces Europe; U.S. Special Operations Command; Office of the Director of National Intelligence and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance.

Her operational assignments include stints in Alaska, Japan, the Western Pacific and the Arabian Gulf.
