BBNC - Personal Note Lisa M. Malone 6/5/2018  
Lisa's husband wrote in an update on his wife's activity; Lisa has been on active duty since graduating and has been setting the navy on fire ever since graduating from Norwich in 2011. I realize I'm bias as her husband, but I'm also retired navy and know truly what an impact she is have on the navy and how she is representing the Navy and Norwich. She has completed two arduous deployments and is currently assigned as an Integrated Air Missile Defense - Weapons Tactics Instructor, not only has she been a lead for live fire with a purpose but has been briefing the Red Sea brief over that last two years, all over the world to countless admirals, captains, CNO, and even the Senate Arms Committee. She has been so exceptional that Admiral Wade gave a her a spot award, a Meritorious Service Medal, which I'm sure you know as an O-3 is very unheard of. Admiral Wade said she was the face of the WTI program and has placed them on the map. All of this has been done while she is completing her JPME and Masters Degree. We are also hoping to get our son to go to Norwich after he graduates from Fishburne Military School, she speaks so highly of it. See Photo.
