WASHINGTON — The White House’s nomination of Robert Work to be the US deputy defense secretary is said to be imminent, according to sources.

The nomination, which has been expected since late last year, could come as early as Wednesday, these sources said.

If confirmed, Work would replace Christine Fox, who has been serving as the acting deputy since early December.

Work stepped down as Navy undersecretary last spring and was quickly named the CEO of the Center for a New American Security think tank.

There he has recently launched a series of high-profile studies exploring Pentagon reform initiatives. ■
