Naval Intelligence Foundation-Navy League Award presented to
LCDR Stephany Moore
by CAPT Mark Greer
On 22 June 2012, at the Navy League Awards Luncheon, in Honolulu, Hawaii, LCDR Stephany L. Moore, USN, was presented the Naval Intelligence Professionals (NIP)-Navy League Award “for exceptional leadership in providing excellence in operational intelligence support to the fleet.”
LCDR Moore was selected for the award, by a DNI-appointed selection board, from among those 04-06 sea service intelligence officers nominated for this prestigious annual award. LCDR Moore distinguished herself by exceptionally meritorious achievement as an intelligence officer assigned to a Navy Special Warfare Development Group.
She was the Senior Intelligence Officer of a Joint Task Force (JTF) tasked with high-risk capture/kill missions against the nation’s most dangerous targets. As the JTF J2, a position normally held by senior Commanders, she led a cross-functional directorate comprised of low density professionals from across the Intelligence Community. Under austere, challenging operational conditions, LCDR Moore’s team developed and orchestrated aggressive collection plans that integrated all-source intelligence and limited tactical, theater, and national ISR assets. Moreover, she was singularly responsible for incorporating fleet units for collection in support of the JYF operations off the Horn of Africa. Due in large part to her unrelenting efforts, the JTF experienced unprecedented success against high value terrorist targets.
The Navy League presented to LCDR Moore an engraved watch and a leather-bound certificate of achievement. NIP presented to her a solid brass telescope, a commemorative wall plaque, and a five-year membership in Naval Intelligence Professionals.
