Lt. Gen. Nina Armagno has been assigned to serve as the U.S. Space Force's director of staff for headquarters, a role through which she will lead daily staff operations of the service's HQ.

She also received a promotion to three-star general, making her USSF's first female general officer, the service branch said Monday. The Pentagon held a ceremony the same day to commemorate her promotion and appointment.

“We’re going to be agile, we’re going to be nimble, and we’re going to bring the best of everything into the space force," she said.

She joined the U.S. military in 1988 and went on to fill roles across multiple space defense-related areas.
