Year (CLPOY), and Navy Linguist of the Year (LOY) programs per refs (a)

(CLP), military and civilian language professionals, and non-career linguists
who have contributed to mission success through the use of foreign language.
The top Navy CLP and LPOY go on to compete at the DoD level. DLIFLC manages
the DoD program, which recognizes the most outstanding military language

3. Period of consideration for all programs is 1 October 2012 to 30 September

proficiency?" Note: This is to be an essay, NOT a research paper, i.e. no
references or footnotes.
5. Per ref (c), Navy may submit only one each nomination to DoD for LPOY and

nominations from subordinate units and submit the best candidate LPOY and
CLPOY to the Navy Foreign Language Office (OPNAV N13F) for consideration.
