    As a female, I have to give a shout out to SJAFB.

    Jeannie Flynn Leavitt is the Wing Queen there.http://www.seymourjohnson.af.mil/library/biographies/bio.asp?id=15663

    You not only have a squadron commander that broke the barriers with the Thunderbirds, but the wing commander is the 1st female to get fighters.

    If you ever go the Pentagon, in the AF corridors there is a corridor that is dedicated to the women in the AF that broke the barriers.

    Fifi and Jeannie are prominent in that corridors along with many women before them.
