Panel confirms 1st female officer for warfighting command:

WASHINGTON — The Senate Armed Services Committee has approved the nomination of the first female officer to lead one of the military's warfighting commands. Members of the panel on Tuesday confirmed Air Force Gen. Lori Robinson to be commander of U.S. Northern Command. The panel acted on a voice vote. The command is responsible for preventing attacks against the United States. Robinson joined the Air Force in 1982 after graduating from the University of New Hampshire. She's currently serving as commander of Pacific Air Forces in Hawaii. The committee also confirmed Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti to be the top American commander in Europe and Army Gen. Vincent Brooks to lead U.S. forces in Korea. Their nominations now go to the full Senate for approval.
