  • Army Like Second Family to Female Aviator

    Jul 16, 2009

    Maj. Jennifer Newsome has spent much of her Army career flying Chinook helicopters. But these days her career has taken a turn into acquisition, where she works in the Cargo Helicopter Project Office for the Program Executive Office of Aviation. Since February 2008, she has served as the assistant product manager for the CH-47F Improved Cargo Helicopter, a remanufactured version of the CH-47 Delta cargo helicopter. Although no longer flying full-time, Newsome will always be among the first female helicopter pilots to fly in a war environment during two deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom. With 11 years in the Army, Newsome is continuing to spread her professional wings as she takes on new responsibilities that will impact the Army's aviation fleet for years to come. The bottom line for her, as with many who are in Army leadership positions, is to make a difference for Soldiers and to continue in that mission for several more years. "This is my second family," she said. "That's a feeling. The Army came around at one point when I was a captain asking what they could do to keep us in the Army. I told them 'You can't do anything. It's the troops. It's the war fighters. It's not the incentives. It's not the money for sure. It's the troops as a whole. That's my family.'
