Becky “Beck” Halstead was selected to attend West Point in 1977--entering with the second class of women, and being the first kid from her hometown to graduate from West Point. Blessed to be the first female graduate of West Point to be promoted to General Officer in 2004, Becky served and commanded in combat as the first female Commanding General at the strategic level of leadership in Iraq, leading 20,000 Soldiers and 5,000 civilians from 2005 to 2006--a first for our Army and our Nation. In 2007 Becky received the National Women’s History Project award for “Generations of Women Moving History Forward”.
