JAG Corps In-Service Procurement Program Results

By Vice Adm. Nanette M. DeRenzi and Rear Adm. James W. Crawford, III

The Fiscal Year 2015 Judge Advocate General’s Corps In-Service Procurement Program (IPP) Selection Board met on Feb. 10, 2015 and considered 15 highly qualified applicants.

The board used the "whole person" concept to identify those applicants with the greatest potential for successful service as a Navy judge advocate. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming to the JAG Corps this year's impressive selectee: Cryptologic Technician (Collection) 2nd Class (IDW) Melisa J. Wink, Navy Cyber Warfare Development Group, enlisted in the Navy in 2012 after graduating summa cum laude from William Penn University with a Bachelor of Arts in Pre-Law and History.

While in school, Wink served as captain of the women's soccer team, studied abroad in Rwanda, and was twice elected Student Body President. After graduating first in her class at  "A" School she reported aboard the Navy Cyber Warfare Development Group in Washington, D.C., where she conducts cyber intelligence analysis in support of U.S. TENTH Fleet operations. She quickly made critical contributions to projects with CNO and interagency involvement, earning recognition as her command's 2013 Bluejacket of the Year. In addition to her professional excellence, Wink has also volunteered hundreds of hours as a local youth soccer coach and took the initiative to learn about the JAG Corps by performing additional duties as a paralegal for the Fleet Cyber Command Staff Judge Advocate's office. Please help us spread the word about this great program. The NAVADMIN announcing the FY-16 IPP Selection Board will be released in June, but application procedures and education requirements are available here.
