The U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association

Welcome Aboard

We are a unique organization of active, retired, and honorably discharged U.S. Navy Cryptologists, past and present, whose primary focus is the preservation of our rich cryptologic history.

Our earliest members were trained in the 1930s to intercept and decode Japanese Katakana transmissions. Their contributions to real-time combat and ultimate Allied victory in the Pacific war at sea and ashore are legendary.

Our current members are Navy Cryptologists who continue the tradition of dedication, skill, and professionalism set by our pioneers.
