Welcome to the U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association

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

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. Their tradition is continued by 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.

Bombes & More

We remember the men of Station Hypo and other, more remote sites during World War II. We are familiar with and honor the legions of women who helped build the aircraft, tanks, and ships.

The contributions of the U.S. Navy’s female cryptologists were critical to helping the Allies win the Secret War.
