Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus was sworn in as commander in the Navy Reserves on Friday. The promotion from lieutenant commander was administered by Navy Operational Support Center Commanding Officer Captain James Macdonald while in Aurora, Colorado.

“I am proud of my military service in the Navy,” Neuhaus said. “I am also proud to serve the residents of Orange County and I am grateful for their continued support.”

Neuhaus became a commissioned Officer in the Navy in December of 2007. He served on active duty earlier this year in Europe with the U.S. Navy’s Sixth Fleet in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Sixth Fleet is the Navy’s operational fleet and staff of the U.S. Naval Forces in Europe and Africa.


Neuhaus was previously on active duty with the Navy from November 2018 to June 2019. During that time, he served with the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force, spending most of his deployment in various locations throughout Iraq in Support of Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S. Military Campaign against ISIS.

The County Executive also served overseas in South Korea in 2017 and North Africa in 2011.
