First female officer in a Lewis-McChord howitzer battery draws universal praise

Capt. Pete Middleton had his choice of two rookie lieutenants he could bring in to his artillery battery last summer. One was a man, the other a woman applying for a traditionally all-male Army assignment. Middleton picked the lieutenant who had better test scores coming out of artillery school. And just like that, Lt. Taylor Cardosi became the first female officer assigned to a Lewis-McChord howitzer battery.
