She moved to the USA where she joined the Army in 1994 as an aviator after passing the Army Aviation Officer Basic Course.

She’s deservedly proud. Of the 1.2m women and men of the US Army, only about 300 make it to the General Officer cadre to which she has now been promoted.

According to the Punch, apart from her Army qualifications, Gen. Azubuike has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication/Media Studies from the University of Central Arkansas, a Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College, and a Master of Professional Studies, Public Relations/Corporate Communications from Georgetown University.
