Congratulations Col. Lorna M. Mahlock!


Col. Lorna M. Mahlock, who was born in Jamaica and immigrated to Brooklyn, was nominated by president Trump the first African-American female to become a general in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Mahlock has had a very successful career as a tower control officer, among the rest. When she was a soldier, she served in Germany, operated in the Office of Legislative Affairs, and served in Okinawa, Japan.

We are very happy she was nominated for yet another role which she will definitely excel.
