I am pleased to report that the Alabama National Guard has named its first female general. Sheryl Gordon, who has been in the guard for nearly 30 years, is the first woman to be promoted to the rank of general in Alabama. You may recall that in November, General Ann E. Dunwoody became the first female four-star general in the U.S. military. Major General A.C. Blalock, the Adjutant General, has worked with General Gordon several times during her career and aptly observed that the guard’s important step is a reflection of society. General Gordon has taken command of the 62nd Troop Command in Montgomery. She started her career there and the Fort Taylor Hardin unit is now the state’s largest with about 5,000 troops. General Gordon’s promotion is good news for women and our firm congratulates her on achieving this important milestone in her career.
