In The Series Of First Women

These seem worth following. Here's one:

More history was made at the White House on Thursday when President Obama climbed aboard his waiting helicopter: An all-female Marine Corps crew was taking him to Andrews Air Force Base.

It was Maj. Jennifer Grieves' last day in a rotation that made her the first female pilot of Marine One, the presidential helicopter.

To honor her achievement, Thursday's three-person crew was made up of women — another first.

The pictures have nothing to do with the topic, though of course Sasha is a female and might be meeting her first teacup. Pictures by Doug.
