Top Gun Inspiration Christine Fox is Now Highest Ranking Female

There is reel life and then there is real life. The Obama administration recently took on board a brilliant lady by the name of Christine Fox who works for the Defense Department. She was the original inspirational character behind Kelly McGillis, Tom Cruise’s cohort in Top Gun. The movie came out in 1986 and was an instant blockbuster.

After Ash Carter resigned some time back, Miss Fox joined the department. United States Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, states in a press release, "Today, I am announcing that President Obama has accepted my recommendation that he appoint Christine Fox Acting Deputy Secretary of Defense, effective Dec. 5."

In the capacity of a smart analyst and intelligent manager, she will bring her skills to the field thereby benefiting the United States of America. Christine knows the ins and outs of the defense locus. She is a very gifted individual indeed. 

In the 80s, Christine aided the male pilots at the Center for Naval Analyses. The think tank employed her for her crucial services as a tactician for naval defense. Most of the aircraft operators had a crush on the tall leggy blonde. Nevertheless, Christine was not just another airhead, but a very wise and perceptive woman. 

She served as the role model for the character of Kelly on Top Gun, but was realistic enough not to have an affair with an aviation expert. That was how the movie script went just for the sake of making things more interesting. Reality after all is a not as romantic as the schmaltzy scenes they show in the movies coming out of Hollywood.
