Four Star General Dunwoody

Posted by ginnypub on November 15, 2008

On June 23, 2008, U.S. President George W. Bush nominated U.S. Army Gen. Ann Dunwoody to serve as the next Commander, U.S. Army Material Command. She was confirmed by the Senate on July 23, 2008.

On 14 Nov 2008, U.S. Army Gen. Ann Dunwoody became the first woman to reach the rank of four-star general in the history of the United States military.

I grew up in the Army and came from a family who, since 1862, has defended our nation. My great grandfather, my grandfather, my father, my brother, my sister, my niece and my husband are all veterans of this country’s wars. My father is a veteran of three wars and is one of the 25 million veterans living today who served the nation with such incredible courage.

“I have never considered myself anything but a Soldier. I recognize that with this selection, some will view me as a trailblazer, but it’s important that we remember the generations of women, whose dedication, commitment and quality of service helped open the doors of opportunity for us today.” Lieutenant General Ann Dunwoody
