Today, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) met with Lt. General Janet Wolfenbarger, who has been nominated for appointment to the grade of general. Lt. General Wolfenbarger is set to become the first female four star general in the U.S. Air Force and upon confirmation, will be Commander of Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  She is currently the Military Deputy, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, and had previously served as Vice-Commander of AFMC.

ā€œI was glad to meet with Lt. General Wolfenbarger while she was in Washington. The work to be done at AFMC will be even more critical in the coming years, with significant budget cuts facing the Department of Defense. I look forward to working with her to strengthen AFMC and the missions at Wright-Patt,ā€ said Turner.
