Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

2009 RADM James S. McFarland Scholarship Award
Just awarded the 2009 RADM James S. McFarland Scholarship a couple of months ago to a deserving cadet at Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama. The young woman who won was very deserving. I think the Admiral would be pleased with the selection committee's choice. The $1000 award will help with her tuition and keep her in school. She is the eighth cadet to have benefitted from the scholarhip thus far.
LCDR Frank Starr is doing a super job with the Marion Military Institute cadets in Alabama - having moved to Marion from the NJROTC program in Pamlico, North Carolina.
