Captain,
You work fast - I just emailed this to you and you got it 2 hours before I got it.
If I remember my tactical signals correctly, Tango Alfa - 88 (Carry out duties assigned) has take on new meaning.
I believe he was the first 1610 to take on the PACOM J2 job.

This has been a great week for Naval Cryptology (or IW if you would rather). I would even say History Making (quick someone contact Dr. Greenhut, former SECGRU Historian):) It seems as though Big Navy regrets kicking SECGRU to the curb and are now putting the right persons in the right positions to finally lead Navy Cryptology into Information Dominance future once and for all.

A fantastic choice! Congrats, Admiral Rogers!

If we can't get our act together under his leadership then it's time to power down all of our equipment and go home.

@ CWO4 Ashpole

I believe RADM Singer (RDML at the time) was the first 1610 PACOM J2.

Note: It is a major misconception that Apocalypse means the end of the world; it is much closer to "the end of the world as we know it." Positive spin.

Less than 1 year from 2 to 3 stars. Not to bad.
