Cryptologic Command Display
The Cryptologic Command Display is a repository of historic naval cryptologic documents, equipment, artifacts and photographs.
Located in Building 503 aboard the Center for Information Warfare Training (CIWT) Corry Station, the Display presents a history of U.S. Navy cryptologic operations. The Display is open on a reduced schedule during weekdays from 0800 until 1530.
The front entrance of the Cryptologic Command Display is located on Corry Station at Roberts Avenue, between 2nd and 3rd Streets. Attached to the outside wall are plaques commemorating the On-The-Roof-Gang, Kamiseya fire, and 1st Radio Battalion, USMC.
Inside the Command Display are three areas devoted to the history of the Naval Cryptologic world:
- The main display area depicts a portion of the displays available covering pre-World War II through the decommissioning of the Naval Security Group.
- The second area contains reference material and donated library books plus some site pictures and class caricatures.
- Between these two areas is a passageway containing two display cases showing coffee mugs, cigarette lighters, and challenge coins from the various duty stations. This area is also the entrance to the U.S. NCVA Ship’s Store which sells shirts, hats, history books, and other souvenirs in the Cryptologic Command Display.
The Display is open between 0800 – 1500 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The Display is closed on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, (Visitation on those days will be by appointment only).
Volunteer Staffing Opportunities
The display continues to be open for visitors, but on a reduced schedule. Volunteers who have a DOD ID Card are needed to help with the following projects/initiatives:
- Scanning historical documents
- Upkeep and maintenance of Display Cases and artifacts. Some tasks would require Electrical and Carpenter skills.
- Welcome visitors and share your knowledge of the Naval Security Group and the CT Rating.
- Training will be provided on the artifacts at the display. Everyone has a story to share.
We learn something from every visitor and they learn something from us.
As a result of the terrorist attack at NAS a couple of years ago things, access to the command—NAS PENSACOLA, CORRY STATION—and the Cryptologic Command Display procedures have changed:
- You must possess a valid DoD ID card or you will be denied entry.
- The only way our limited CCD staff can get folks in is to escort them from the parking lot to the Museum in our vehicle(s).
- The limited CCD staff will do everything possible to make sure that those who want to visit the CCD may do so.
- Although we are short-handed, we can muster enough people to accommodate those who want to visit.
