David Glasgow Farragut became the first Admiral in the US Navy in 1866. ................ my Version: Farragut was the first 4-star "Admiral", and he achieved that rank of simply Admiral, promoting from the 3-star rank of Vice Admiral, on July 25, 1866. However the first specifically "admirals…" in the United States, came about two years prior. Congress finally authorized the first 9 admirals -- rear admirals -- on July 16, 1862, ostensibly for international considerations -although that was probably more for the needs of the rapidly expanding Navy during the American Civil War. Some accounts are that Farragut also was the first of these nine first admirals as well; and atop that, Farragut was first also appointed to the 3-star rank of vice admiral in between Admiral and Rear Admiral -- two years after the rear admiral rank; then on to the aforementioned 4-star "Admiral", in 1866. The Continental then U.S. Navies, did not specifically have any admirals until 1862 because many people felt the title too reminiscent of royalty, such as in the British Royal Navy, to be used in the country's navy. Others saw the need for ranks above Captain, among them Captain (and for a time, Commodore) John Paul Jones, who pointed out that the Navy had to have officers who "ranked" with American army generals. He also felt there must be ranks above captain to avoid disputes among senior captains. Many navy secretaries from respective presidential cabinets in fact repeatedly recommended to the American congress that admiral ranks be created because the other navies of the world used them and American senior officers were "often subjected to serious difficulties and embarrassments in the interchange of civilities with those of other nations." The rank of Commodore, sometimes associated to be the equivalent of an admiral rank, more so in other navies, was held by American naval officers throughout history. It is largely regarded as a positional rank, given to a senior captain in charge of a group of ships commanded by captains. The famous American naval heros John Paul Jones and John Barry were American navy commodores in the mid eighteenth century, and among the first to held those flag-equivalent ranks. Jones achieved the rank and position of Commodore aboard Bon Homme Richard in 1778. In fact, Commodore Esek Hopkins was the only Commander in Chief of the American Continental Navy during the American Revolutionary War, and was first promoted to brigadier general to command all military forces of Rhode Island in October 4, 1775; and on December 22, 1775, Hopkins was appointed Commander in Chief of the Continental Navy authorized by the Continental Congress, and so the first (admiral-esque) Commodore. As well, John Paul Jones retained his commission in the American Navy, while becoming a Rear Admiral in the Russian Navy (in 1787), encouraged by the U.S. Congress at that time, and so was the first American naval officer to hold the title of admiral, albeit not a U.S. one. The congressional intent was to facilitate his experience so that Jones might potentially become the first U.S. admiral later. However, Jones died before that occured, in 1792 at age 45 due to a kidney illness. On February 22, 1797, after the U.S. Continental Navy had ended, and the U.S. Navy been rebirthed, Captain John Barry was issued "Commission Number 1" by President George Washington, which was also backdated to June 4, 1794. His title was thereafter "Commodore." He is recognized as not only the first American commissioned naval officer in the new U.S. Navy, but also as its first flag officer. In the U.S., being a 'flag officer' (able to unfurl an admiral-like flag on one's ship) is regarded to be an admiral equivalent, and so this could also be argued to be the first time an admiral equivalent was so named. It should be noted that until the 20th century, ranks of admiral were associated with billets, and in effect not a permanent paygrade until the last year of WW II. Also note that a more senior rank, Fleet Admiral (5-star) exists, only in wartime, and even a 6-star rank has existed (held for a spell by George Dewey in 1899). 5 Star Rank was first created in 1944, worn by William Leahy, Ernest King, Chester Nimitz, and William Halsey. The rank Dewey Held though, was reverted to being the 'most senior 5-star admiral' in the Navy. One could also make a case for these officers to be firsts in various titles of being the most senior admiral. (MORE)

I found this question quite by accident as it had been moved from it's original location. I do not know to my knowledge if my female friend admires me, but if she does I cannot see why. From a personal viewpoint, I am merely one of millions on the web who voice opinions. Mine might have a different… slant than others, but it has always been my practice to give respect to any other human being and never belittle another's viewpoint. When someone takes the time to ask a question, it is important to me to honor the request of that person with an answer. To value all people is a personal goal. While sometimes I fall short of the goal I do try to attain it. If my female friend admires what I do, then I am honored and pleased...and rather embarrassed. I am no different than any of hundreds of users here on WikiAnswers, I sincerely enjoy sharing what I know or can find out. It is a personal satisfaction and, rather selfishly, I am gratified when I think that I can help someone. Whether it is admirable or not I do not know, but in a world where there is so much hatred and destruction, it is a joy to be able to share and build up others in a constructive way. This question is a delight, a surprise, and somewhat difficult to answer. If the questioner is a female friend that I know....how wonderful that I can be an inspiration, my dear! I do not think of myself as anything other than just another user, but if it pleases you to view my work, it pleases me to oblige you. Thank you so much for such a pleasant surprise on a lovely Shabbat! (MORE)

The rank is an appointed one, and goes with the position they're appointed into. The requirement is that they be an Admiral of lower rank before being appointed. By U.S. law, there is a specific cap on the number of active duty Navy flag officers who can serve at any one time, which is 216. Of that …number, only 16% can be of 2-Star rank, and of those 16%, only 25% of them can be appointed to 4-Star positions. That equates to 9 4-Star Admirals toward the cap limit. They must be nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The Admiral cap includes the Coast Guard, Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Commissioned Corps for purposes of the total number of 4-Star Admirals. There are several positions that are reserved by law for 4-Star Admirals that count toward the cap limit: Chief of Naval Operations Vice Chief of Naval Operations Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion (Office of Naval Reactors) Commandant of the Coast Guard Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (Assistant Secretary of Health, if appointed by the President) There are positions that Admirals can be appointed to that rate 4 Stars, but don't count toward the overall cap limit (e.g, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Director of the CIA, Joint Commands). This is why the current number (as of February 2010) of 4-Star Admirals on active duty is 10 for the Navy, with one Vice Admiral currently in the middle of the appointment / confirmation process for promotion to 4-Star rank. They are: 1. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) - ADM Michael G. Mullen 2. Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) - ADM Gary Roughead 3. Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) - ADM Jonathan W. Greenert 4. Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion - ADM Kirkland H. Donald 5. Commander, U.S. European Command (USEUCOM) and Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) - ADM James G. Stavridis 6. Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFLTFORCOM) - ADM John C. Harvey, Jr. 7. Commander, U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) - ADM Robert F. Willard 8. Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) - ADM Eric T. Olson 9. Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe (USNAVEUR) - Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Africa (USNAVAF) and Commander, Allied Joint Force Command Naples (JFC Naples) - ADM Mark P. Fitzgerald 10. Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (USPACFLT) - ADM Patrick M. Walsh Nominated and Pending Senate Confirmation - Commander, U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) and Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) - VADM James A. Winnefeld, Jr. It should be noted that like anything in the military or government, the cap limit can be exceed in times of war or emergency should the President deem it necessary. (MORE)

An Admiral in the US navy is pay grade O-10, with a minimum salary of a bit over $15,000 per month - since that's the salary for 20 years of service and it normally takes considerably longer than that to reach Admiral rank, a more typical amount would be close to $17,000 per month. Depending on le…ngth of service, it could potentially be up to $18,675 per month. That's for a full Admiral. The lowest "general officer" rank in the US Navy is Rear Admiral (lower half), which is pay grade O-7. To make RDML, you'd normally have to be a Captain for at least three years, and it usually takes 21-23 years of service to reach Captain, so the typical RDML would be making about $11,500 per month.
