First Woman Leads USAF Academy

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that “it was one of the military’s last glass ceilings, but the Air Force Academy’s new superintendent isn’t making much noise as she shatters it.”

“Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson said becoming the first woman to lead the academy is just another confirmation of the greatness of the country she serves.”

“‘It’s a very American experience,’ said Johnson, the school’s 19th superintendent.”

“Johnson took command of the academy amid pomp and ceremony Monday morning, replacing retiring Lt. Gen. Michael Gould.”
