Howie's Shipmates - Rusty Smith, H Winsor Whiton & Jerome Rapin attend.
Captain Howie Ehret was one of five Cryptologists Added to NSA/CSS Cryptologic Hall of Honor

FORT MEADE, MD-Five "cryptologic greats" were inducted into the NSA/CSS Cryptologic Hall of Honor today at the National Cryptologic Museum (NCM). Rick Ledgett, Deputy Director of the National Security Agency, presided over the ceremony and highlighted the distinguished achievements of each of the inductees.  This is the only one that interests me.
  • Captain Howard Ehret: A modern pioneer in U.S. Naval cryptology - namely "Naval Cryptology's Rickover" - who brought state-of-the-art technology to naval operations and standardized naval cryptologic work roles and education to change the culture of naval cryptology and reduce the threat of enemies to the U.S.
