The position, which is subject to Senate confirmation, is one of the most senior in the U.S. military and would make Robinson – who now leads U.S. air forces in the Pacific – the top general overseeing activities in North America. “General Robinson, it just so happens, would also be the first ever female combatant commander,” Carter said, disclosing Obama’s plans to nominate her.
