First female commander at Fort Leonard Wood wants women to know what's possible for them in military

Maj. Gen. Donna Martin

FORT LEONARD WOOD, MO. • The hallway leading to the commander’s office is adorned with 40 framed pictures, arranged like a long arrow pointing forward, of the men in uniform who have led this sprawling post in the Ozarks.

Bucking the trend, the latest photo added to the wall is of Army Maj. Gen. Donna Martin, the first woman to lead Fort Leonard Wood since it opened in 1941. She’s also one of few African-Americans to do so.
