U.S. Naval Cryptologic Veterans Association

How Do I Contribute Website or CRYPTOLOG Content?

We need you to submit content for our Website and CRYPTOLOG!

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 cryptologic direct support.
