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 Naval Cryptologic Reserve Association (NCRA) in 2008.
The function of the Association includes:
Providing fraternal, social and recreational activities for members and guest.
Advocating strong and adequate U.S. Armed Forces sufficient to maintain security interests worldwide.
Supporting efforts to preserve and strengthen the security of capabilities of the cryptologic agencies of the Department of Defense.
Encouraging and supporting the preservation of the history of cryptology by members of the Association and appropriate Federal agencies.
- Conducting a periodic reunion usually in conjunction with the Navy Cryptologic Veterans Association (which you are encouraged to join here using the linked form). Pictures from the 2014 Reunion are posted here.
Membership in the NCRA is open to all current and former affiliates of a Naval Security Group Reserve unit or a Naval Reserve Information Operations unit and to all currently or formerly assigned on active or inactive duty to support or monitor those units. All rates and all ranks are invited.
