    190821-N-XX082-0004 MONTEREY, Calif. (August 21, 2019) Sailors attached to Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Monterey stand if formation during a ceremony. IWTC Monterey dedicated its command training stage and surrounding buildings in honor of Senior Chief Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive) Shannon Kent, Aug. 21. The area is now formally known as the “Kent Navy Yard,” a small portion of the Presidio of Monterey and Defense Language Institute (DLI), which includes a number of Navy barracks buildings. A boulder with a bronze plaque was placed in front of the stage to permanently memorialize Kent, who was herself a graduate of the DLI. In November 2018, Kent deployed to Syria as part of a highly skilled, multidisciplined armed forces task force involved in critical and demanding intelligence work. Kent was killed in action by an improvised explosive device detonated by a suicide bomber in the city of Manbij, Jan. 16, 2019.
