Recently, President Trump nominated Col. Lorna Mahlock of the United States Marine Corps to serve as a brigadier general.
If confirmed, this would make the 49-year-old Mahlock the first African American woman to serve in the highly prestigious position.
Mahlock, who joined the Marines in 1985, has served with an exemplary record, and her nomination was announced by Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis.

As reported by ABC
Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a historic nomination Tuesday.
If confirmed, Marine Corps Col. Lorna M. Mahlock will be the first black female to serve as brigadier general, according to the Marine Corps office of public affairs.
Right now, Mahlock is the deputy director of operations, plans, policies and operations directorate at the Marine Corps’ headquarters in Washington, D.C., according to a press release.
The Marine Corps is the smallest of the four military services, and the branch has the fewest female service members, according to the Marine Corps Community Services.
Women make up just 8 percent of the Marine Corps, but that percentage is likely to increase, according to Gen. Glenn Walters, the assistant commandant of the Marine Corps.
Trump supporters quickly pointed out that, despite the left’s attempts to portray him as “racist,” the president’s nomination makes him the first Commander in Chief to ever nominate a black woman for the position of brigadier general.
Oh wait…. he’s a RACIST RIGHT!!??🤔🤔🤔🤔
