Retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, the branch’s first-ever female to become a four-star general, has been selected to serve on the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services.
“It is truly an honor to be selected to serve on this important committee. I retired last July after serving for 35 years in the United States Air Force. I am thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to continue to serve my nation in this new capacity,” Wolfenbarger said in the release.
The 35-year veteran received her fourth start June 2012 and led Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base until her retirement in July.
Wolfbenbarger is also a former military deputy to the assistant air force secretary for acquisition.
