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 evolved to the U.S. Naval Cryptologic Reserve Association (NCRA) in 2008.
NCRA membership is open to all current and former affiliates of a Naval Reserve Information Operations Command (NR NIOC) unit or a Naval Reserve Security Group (NRSG) unit and to all personnel currently or formerly assigned to support or monitor those units. All rates and all ranks are invited.
