Posted on 07/18/2014 6:54:32 AM PDT by DFG
The White House has picked the first female general to head the Air Force in the Pacific, which will make her the first non-pilot to command air power in such a large theater of operation.
The Pentagon announced this week that Air ForceLt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson has been nominated for promotion to four-star general and as commander of Pacific Air Forces, the Air Force component of U.S. Pacific Command. It is a major combatant command whose air, ground and naval forces have broad responsibility for security in the Asia-Pacific region. Her nomination was sent to the Senate for confirmation.

Yabut, is she a member of the mile high club (Happy Division)?
..... and she was nominated for a promotion amid a drive for more diversity in the Pentagon.
I don’t know why they’re screwing around with this ..... just go ahead and put The Mooch in charge. [/s]
Yeah, well, the whole nation elected a person who was not qualified. There is nothing here. Move on.
First top generals are purged from the military. Now this.
What’s wrong with that?
Affirmative Action worked for Obama, why not for her?
You can see just how well it worked out.
Equal-opportunity, affirmative action appointment. Will some die because of this?
Sure isn’t the PACAF I served in.
It is all part of the plan by the VRWC to gut the effectiveness of the forces of Mordor on the Potomac in the runup to the coming revolution.
Good for her.
Bad for America.
Just put an accountant or lawyer in charge, they call the shots anyway.
guess who is REALLY screwed?-
our former allies-
Japan- say goodbye to your islands
korea- Kim will now do MORE selective attacks
phillipines- same as Japan, loss of territory
and finally— Taiwan- hold on to your Hats-
No American forces will be coming to help you!
Progressives believe the military is just college with guns and uniforms.
PC is going to get us all killed.
Women should not be cops nor firemen and certainly not Air Force Generals - especially if they never flew nor fought in the air!
Stupidest appointment ever.
its about time they fixed the Air Force. For too long its been two white and two male. (sic)
The Sec AF is Female and is a gender loyal type. Expect more. PS they hate christians too.
As an AF Vet its hard to admit all this.
I don’t know what all the stink is about. It is a government job. Lacking the qualifications a reasonable minded person would expect is a resume enhancer. And no, I am not joking.
I have a couple of relatives who were in the AF - love those guys & thank you for your service!
qualifications don’t matter anymore - you can be POTUS whose only qualification is skin color, and next up a POTUS because of gender. Hey...it’s all good! /s
And how would any of that change under this president regardless of who commanded the Pacific Air Forces?
