All-Female Crew on Marine One Flight

The first female Marine One pilot has marked the final flight on her rotation with another first: an all-female crew. CNN reports:

Major Jennifer Grieves is the first Marine One female pilot. Her achievement was marked as she landed on the South Lawn of the White House to pick up the President.

And the LA Times:

Maj. Jennifer Grieves of Glendale, Ariz., flew her first Marine One mission in May 2008, and had flown Obama and then-President George W. Bush.In honor of Grieves’ last day in the rotation, the Marines assigned two other female officers — Maj. Jennifer L. Marino, of Palisade, Colo., and Sgt. Rachael A. Sherman, of Traverse City, Mich. — to complete the crew. And that all-female crew was another first.

Marine Maj. Jennifer Grieves, the first pilot to commander a Marine One helicopter Marines say Grieves is off to Command and Staff College in Quantico, Va.

Thanks for the heads-up Vishal Lama!

  1. I have to say, elp, you must have worked hard on getting them in. I think I removed about 8 pairs of the blockquote sign. I particularly liked the way lots clustered at the bottom.

    Still, we do not encourage clutter, do we? We might get a visit from the flylady.

  2. i’m a terrible techno-eejit. (which is weird, because i always did really well with formal logic, set theory, etc. things that seem related to computing!) i figured out how to see the comments people add to word documents about 2 months ago, and i feel pretty well content to let that be my annual computer victory.
