York College Grad Makes Naval History

A 1981 cum laude graduate of York College in political science, Charlotte O. Wise, has just been promoted at a Pentagon ceremony to the rank of Captain in the Navy's Judge Advocate General's Corps.

Captain Wise becomes the first African-American woman to hold this rank in the JAG Corps, in which she has served since 1983.

The Brooklyn native went on from York College to earn her J.D. at Brooklyn Law School. Subsequently, she has been stationed aboard the USS Holland, at Key West, Charleston, Charlottesville (where the JAG School is located), and Providence, where she was Executive Officer of the Naval Justice School from 1997 to 2000. In 2001 she reported to her current position as executive assistant and special counsel to the Department of the Navy's General Counsel at the Pentagon.

Wise has been admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as the N.Y. and N.J. Supreme Courts.
