A few weeks ago, Robin Wakefield, an attorney with the New York City Law Department, got her marching orders to report to Fort Drum for active military duty.

Last week, Wakefield, a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve Judge Advocate Generals’ Corps, put her life as a civilian attorney on hold and began a year-long mobilization with the 10th Mountain Division. This marks the third time Wakefield, 49, has been called to active duty since joining the JAG in 2002.
