    These are the first ever uniform items that I have acquired that are from a General officer. This lady has had a long distinguished career and was just appointed the first ever female president of the State University of New York Maritime College.

    Carpenter received her commission through Aviation Officer Candidate School, NAS Pensacola, Florida, with Class 19-77 and was designated a Naval Aviator in July 1979. Graduating at the top of her class, she was assigned as the Navy's first Selectively Retained Graduate Instructor Pilot (SERGRAD) in the T-44 aircraft at VT-31, NAS Corpus Christi, Texas. Following her tour as an instructor pilot, Rear Admiral Carpenter was ordered to sea duty at VQ-3 (TACAMO), NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii, where she served as a Mission Commander, Aircraft Commander and Instructor Pilot in the EC130F/G/Q aircraft. She deployed throughout the Pacific and the western U.S. and Alaska in support of the nation's strategic nuclear triad. After completing a shore assignment at the Naval Military Personnel Command as an Aviation Junior Officer Assignments Officer, Carpenter left active duty and accepted a reserve commission in February 1985.

    Remaining highly active in the operational reserve force, Carpenter's assignments have included the staffs of Commander Carrier Group Four, Commander Naval Forces Europe, Commander Sixth Fleet, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (DCNO) Fleet Readiness and Logistics, and Commander Second Fleet. Rear Admiral Carpenter has accepted numerous recalls to active duty and has held four Navy reserve commands at the Commander and Captain level: Officer in Charge of VR 506, CINCUSNAVEUR DET 108, DCNO N4 Fleet Readiness and Logistics DET 106, and Second Fleet JFACC. Under her leadership as Commanding Officer of Fleet Readiness and Logistics, the 75 member CNO staff unit shared the FY01 DON CIO Award for "E Business" in government. She has represented the United States in a number of coalition and NATO forums, and completed Senior Courses at the NATO School in Oberammergau, Germany.

    Carpenter's Flag assignments include: Deputy Commander of Navy Region Southeast, Jacksonville, Florida from October 2004- September 2005, acting Director, OPNAV N31 (Information, Plans, Security Division) from April 2005-May 2005, Vice Director, Standing Joint Forces HQ (SJFHQ), U.S. Joint Forces Command from December 2004-September 2006, and Deputy Commander, Second Fleet from October 2006-June 2008.

    In June 2008, Carpenter assumed command of Navy Warfare Development Command, Norfolk, VA, where she served through June, 2011.

    Carpenter's awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit (3 awards), Meritorious Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal (5 awards), Navy Achievement Medal, and various units awards. She has accumulated 3500 military flight hours. Carpenter is a distinguished graduate of the Naval War College and completed Capstone with class 06-02. Additionally, she has completed executive programs at the National Defense University, UNC Chapel Hill, Defense Acquisition University and EBC II at Babson College.
