U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association

Contributing Content to Your Website

We need you to submit content for our Website!

Content Sought

Our Association is certainly about camaraderie, reconnecting with shipmates, and reunions and we need articles, links, and downloadable files that address these subjects.

Articles

We are also about the legacy of our Navy and Navy cryptology in defense of our nation and our national interests. We can tell these stories without violating security restrictions or flaming others. We're looking for stories—Sea Stories, too—of Navy Cryptology in our conflicts, from World War II to today, of Women in Cryptology, of surface, subsurface, and airborne direct support.

Guidelines & Policies

Politics We do not publish partisan political statements or politically-charged content.
Humor, etc.

Good Navy sarcasm and humor are fine. What is not fine are:

  • Profanity
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Insults

Decisions by the Web Administrators regarding violations of these standards are final. You may, of course, protest their decision and whine about “political correctness.” But the Web Administrators are Chiefs and Chiefs are never wrong.
