U.S. Congressman Dan Boren met with General Ann E. Dunwoody, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Materiel Command (AMC), recently in his Washington D.C. office. AMC is one of the largest commands in the Army with more than 66,000 employees and an impact or presence in 48 states and 127 countries.
AMC is the Army command that oversees the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant (McAAP) in eastern Oklahoma. Congressman Boren also currently serves as the Democrat Co-Chair for the Military Depot and Industrial Facilities Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“It was a pleasure to meet General Dunwoody and discuss the current status and future needs of Army Materiel Command. McAAP has played an integral role in both AMC’s mission, and in successfully leveraging industrial power to enhance the military readiness of our nation’s warfighters. I look forward to working with General Dunwoody and members of the House Military Depot and Industrial Facilities Caucus on behalf of our nation’s military and the employees at McAAP,” said Boren.
General Ann E. Dunwoody assumed the duties as the U.S. Army Materiel Command's Commanding General on November 14, 2008 and in doing so became the first female Four-Star General in the United States military.
In addition to General Dunwoody’s current connection to the State of Oklahoma through the oversight of McAAP, her first command assignment in her Army career was to serve with the 226th Maintenance Company at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
