Another Hurdle: 1st Woman Named Four Star General

November 15, 2008

The United States has become a nation of female achievers.  The next frontier is for women to start flying past the hurdles to equal leadership in our nation.  I'm thrilled by yesterday's news that the United States Army has just promoted the first woman to the prestigious rank of Four Star General.  After 33 years of service, General Ann Dunwoody was named to the military's highest rank, joining only 10 other active Four Star Generals. 

Her husband, who served for 26 years in the Air Force, helped do the honors at yesterday's emotional ceremony in Washingot, D.C.  To see the historic moment and hear what she had to say about the letters and emails she has received from military men and women throughout the world, click here.
