DOD nominates first woman for a fourth star

President Bush nominated Army Lt. Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody for promotion to General.  If approved by the Senate, that would make Dunwoody the first woman ever to get a fourth star in the US Military.

Dunwoody became deputy commanding general of the Army Materiel Command on June 17, and was nominated by Defense Secretary Gates to assume command of AMC, putting her in charge of the Army’s  new technology programs, aquisition support and logistics operations.
