"This is a great time to be a Sailor, this is a great time to be in the cryptology field," said center Commanding Officer, Captain Edward H. Deets III upon the initial commissioning of the Center for Naval Cryptology at Corry Station - Pensacola, Florida. "We have the best and brightest Sailors. They are very smart and highly motivated. For their service, we must ensure they are given all the tools and opportunities they need to succeed. The Center for Naval Cryptology is sharpening the point of America's spear."
