WWII: Navy Brings Back the Commodores

January 28, 1942
Commodore Admiral (07)
Washington DC (AP):  With the approval of the President and Congress, Secretary of the Navy Knox reintroduced the one star flag officer rank of the US Navy under the title of Commodore Admiral.  Presently there are 3 Navy Captains bearing the title Commodore and all will be allowed to retain it until either promotion, or retirement.  The new rank was to avoid consternation in the new unified US command structure.  Commodores will generally command flotillas, squadrons, groups and wings.
