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.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter appointed Wolfenbarger in a swearing-in ceremony during a DACOWITS quarterly business meeting, Defense Department said Tuesday.

“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.
