Washington (CNN)The US Navy's highest-ranking officer pushed back strongly against what he called efforts by two Republican congressmen to portray the US military as "weak" and "woke" in a hearing on Tuesday.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday's comments came during a House Armed Services budget hearing as Reps. Doug Lamborn and Jim Banks questioned his recommendation of the book "How to be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi on a voluntary reading list for Navy sailors, which Gilday tied directly to efforts to combat misinformation by adversaries such as Russia and China.
