Ohio Native Is 1st Air Force Female 4-Star General
An Ohio native has become the first female four-star general in the Air Force.
Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger received her fourth star yesterday at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton as she was promoted to oversee the Air Force Materiel Command. The command develops and maintains Air Force aircraft and weapons programs.
Wolfenbarger previously served as its vice commander and has held other positions at the base. She’s from nearby Greene County.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz led the promotion ceremony and called Wolfenbarger “an extraordinary public servant and a model Air Force officer.”
Wolfenbarger takes over for retiring Gen. Donald Hoffman, who served for 42 years.
She is the second female four-star general in the military. Army Gen. Ann Dunwoody earned the rank in 2008.
