PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, has a new president.

Rear Adm. P. Gardner Howe III became the college's 55th president in a ceremony at the college Tuesday. He succeeds Rhode Island native Rear Adm. Walter E. "Ted" Carter Jr.

Carter, who has led the college for a year, will next serve as superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and become a vice admiral. He was the first naval flight officer to command the war college.

Howe is the first Navy SEAL to do so. Howe most recently served as the commander of the Special Operations Command, Pacific, in Hawaii.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert was the guest speaker.
