DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - The top general at Ohio’s largest military base will retire later this year.

Gen. Janet C. Wolfenbarger is stepping down as head of the Air Force Materiel Command, the largest employer at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton.

The command employs about 80,000 people at bases around the country, including 13,000 at Wright-Patterson.

Wolfenbarger is the first female four-star general in the Air Force.

The Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/17IqcHV ) reports her retirement was announced last week at an Air Force Association conference in Florida.
