For the first time, women leads the US Army's largest division.

 For the first time in history, a woman will take command of the United States Armed Forces, also called Forscom. Lieutenant-General Laura Richardson was appointed to the post on Wednesday (17), but provisionally. It will take care of a team of 776 thousand soldiers and 96 thousand civilians.
 The division was headed by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, who stepped down to lead the US troops in South Korea. Richardson will serve as interim commander until the Abrams replacement is nominated and confirmed by the Senate. Forscom's director of public relations, Colonel Michael Lawhorn, on the other hand, confirmed that the commander is on the list of possible nominees for the definitive command, and that his provisional leadership will last for at least a few months.
 Laura Richardson has been in the Army for 32 years. She was the first woman to become the deputy commander of the First Cavalry Division (2012) and the first to serve as the deputy commander of Forscom (2017).
