First Female Four-Star General Named

Ad Feedback

The Army now has its first female Four-Star General in U.S. military history.

Reflecting on her 33-year career at a Pentagon ceremony Friday, Ann Dunwoody said she didn't plan to stay in the Army, but an enlisted man changed that.

"I attribute staying in the Army past my two years to my very first platoon sergeant, Sergeant First Class Wendell Bowen, who took the training of second lieutenants very seriously," she said. "And I remember him telling me, 'I'm going to make you the best lieutenant in the United States Army.'"

Dunwoody will head up the Army Materiel Command, or the AMC.

As they say in the Army, "If a soldier shoots it, drives it, flies it, wears it or eats it, AMC provides it."
