Navy Admiral Michelle Howard is under consideration by President-elect Donald Trump to head the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Word that Trump is giving some thought to picking her came in a Thursday tweet from Maggie Haberman of the New York Times.

Howard is currently the commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe. She is the first African-American woman to command a U.S. Navy ship, The Hill reported.

Just this week, the website noted, a group of 20 veterans had asked Trump to "strongly consider" keeping current VA Secretary Bob McDonald.

"While you continue your deliberations over who you will select to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, we ask you to strongly consider the proven track record of the current VA Secretary, Bob McDonald, who is leading the largest transformation in the department's history," the group said in a letter to Trump.
