ALBANY, N.Y. — A veteran of the war in Afghanistan is set to become the first woman to hold the top enlisted airman's position in the New York Air National Guard.

State Division of Military and Naval Affairs officials say Chief Master Sgt. Amy Gianquinto of Ballston Spa in Saratoga County will formally take over the position of command chief master sergeant during a ceremony being held early Monday afternoon at the agency's headquarters in suburban Albany.

As command chief master sergeant Gianquinto will be the top enlisted airman among the state's 5,800-member Air Guard. She'll report directly to the commander of the Air National Guard on issues pertaining to enlisted personnel.

She's replacing Chief Master Sgt. Richard King, who has held the position since 2010.
