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.

"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.'
