U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association

The U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association


Our uniqueness is founded in the pioneering spirit of our oldest members who were trained in the 1930s to intercept and decode Japanese Katakana transmissions, and in our youngest members who are singled out and recognized annually from the ranks of currently serving Naval Cryptologists as the best representatives of those early pioneers.
