REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The U. S. Army Materiel Command announced the arrival of its commanding general, Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, to Huntsville, Ala. Monday.

Dunwoody completed her relocation from Fort Belvoir, Va. and arrived at her command's new location at Redstone Arsenal today. She and her husband, retired Air Force Colonel Craig Brotchie, join an already robust and productive AMC team of approximately 800 employees at Redstone Arsenal, Ala.

Dunwoody and the entire AMC family are extremely happy to be in Huntsville. The outpouring of support and the warm welcome from the Tennessee Valley community have made the transition easy for the employees and their families.

Although Dunwoody is senior in rank, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Managment Command's commander, Maj. Gen. James E. Rodgers, remains the senior mission commander for the installation.

Dunwoody is the Army's first female 4-star general in the history of the United State Army. She assumed the duties as the U.S. Army Materiel Command's commanding general Nov.14, 2008.

AMC is one of the largest commands in the Army with more than 70,000 employees and impacts or has a presence in all 50 states and in 155 countries.

Dunwoody and her husband will reside on post at Redstone Arsenal, along with their dog, Barney.
