CAPT Joseph Rochefort - A GIANT of the cryptologic community

The Information Warfare Community recently established the Captain Joseph Rochefort Distinguished Leadership Award.  The contributions of the Station HYPO team under CAPT Rochefort remain foundational to our Community's heritage.   Annually, the community will honor the superior achievements of one Navy Information Warfare Officer.

Officers will be nominated by their peers and a winner selected by an appointed panel.  You will see the official announcement, criteria, and call for nominees shortly from Fleet Cyber Command/TENTH Fleet.  (As announced in RADM Deets' communique to the community on 6 April 2011).

For more information on this historic figure, you can go HERE.
