By Vice Adm. Nanette M. DeRenzi and Deputy Judge Advocate General of the Navy Rear Adm. James W. Crawford, III

The FY-14 Judge Advocate General's Corps In-Service Procurement Program (IPP) Selection Board met on January 30th, 2014 and considered 11 highly qualified applicants. Due to unique circumstances this year, two exceptional applicants will commission through this program. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming to the JAG Corps the inaugural selectees: Personnel Specialist 2nd Class (AW/SW) Scott A. Hunter, Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron SEVEN ONE (HSM 71), received his Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from the University of California-Berkeley in 2007 and completed his Juris Doctor from Loyola-Marymount Law School in 2010. He was admitted to the California Bar in December 2010 and enlisted in the Navy in October 2011.

Aviation Electrician's Mate 1st Class (AW) Christopher Salmon, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron TWO FOUR, enlisted in the Navy in May 2006 and received his Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Studies from Hawaii Pacific University in 2013. Next year's IPP Selection Board looks to be even more competitive as word spreads about this great opportunity. A NAVADMIN announcing the FY-15 IPP Selection Board will be released in June. We encourage anyone interested to apply and invite the JAG community to provide guidance and professional mentorship to those interested.
