WASHINGTON, D.C. — Lt. Gen. Lori (Howard) Robinson has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate as a four-star general, the highest rank in the U.S. Air Force, her proud father George Howard of Jackson said recently.
“It's really quite an accomplishment — we are very, very proud of her,” said Howard, who is a retired USAF colonel. “She is the second female in the Air Force to achieve that rank and the first to command combat forces as the Commander of the Pacific Air Forces, PACAF. The Air Component commander is her position in the joint Pacific command, PACOM, along with the Army and Navy components.”
