This photo taken Jan. 9, 2014 shows U.S. Navy Commander Valerie Overstreet poses in her office on the U.S. Naval Academy campus in Annapolis, Md. At left is a photograph of Overstreet as a child running to her father, Gil Rud, who spent his career as a Navy pilot. Overstreet wanted to start a family. But her job as a Navy pilot and the fact that she and her husband, also a naval officer, were stationed in different parts of the country made it complicated. So she decided to take advantage of a fledgling Navy program that allowed her to take a year off and return to duty without risking her career or future commands. Now, three years later, she’s got a two-year-old daughter and a nine-month old son, she’s back at work at the Naval Academy in Annapolis and her promotion to captain has been confirmed.
