Another Historic First for America

This afternoon, the Pentagon announced the promotion of Ann E. Dunwoody to the rank of four-star General.  General Dunwoody is the first woman in the history of the US military to attain the rank of full General. She is a native of New York and has served in the Army since she was commissioned as a second Lieutenant in 1975.

General Dunwoody, 55, holds graduate degrees in national resource strategy and logistics management. She will be in charge of the Army's Global Materiel Command which is responsible for equiping, arming and outfitting US soldiers around the world.
