First Female Commanding General At R.I. Arsenal



A change of command today on the Rock Island Arsenal for the joint munitions command, appointing it's first female commanding general.
Brigadier General Kristin K. French said she is excited to be here and ready to continue the mission, despite a time of furloughs and cut-backs.

"We are trying to address it with each of our different sites and supporting all of the local workforce," French said. "They're doing a great job with understanding that this has been a decision made for the short term and we'll do our best to get through this timeline."

The joint munitions command provides ammunition for the U.S. Military services.
Brigadier General French said they provide for both training and combat operations.
