The U.S. Naval Cryptologic Reserve Association
In 2006, a group of Navy Security Group reservists created an alumni organization. The name of that organization was changed from Navy Cryptologic Reserve Alumni Association to Navy Cryptologic Reserve Association in 2007 and was further refined to U.S. Naval Cryptologic Reserve Association (U.S. NCRA) in 2008.
