A 4-Star HOOAH!

First woman four-star general to lead major Army Command

FORT BELVOIR, Va. (AMC News Service, Nov. 7, 2008) - Lt. Gen. (promotable) Ann E. Dunwoody will assume command of the U.S. Army Materiel Command from outgoing commander, Gen. Benjamin S. Griffin in a ceremony at the AMC headquarters parade field here Nov. 14 at 2 p.m.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. George W. Casey, Jr. will preside over the ceremony, which will include a 19-gun salute, the AMC Band and the AMC ceremonial color guard.

Dunwoody will be promoted as the first woman four-star general in the U.S. military in a ceremony at the Pentagon earlier in the day.


The U.S. Army Materiel Command is the Army's premier provider of materiel readiness - technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics, power projection and sustainment - to the total force, across the spectrum of joint military operations. If a Soldier shoots it, drives it, flies it, wears it or eats it, AMC provides it.

What? A woman? A 4-star? Note to the US Army: What took you so long!!??
