    The Center for Information Warfare Training hosted 24 Naval Junior ROTC (NJROTC) cadets, May 17-18.

    The cadets from Port St. Joe High School in Port St. Joe, Florida and their naval science instructor, retired Navy Cmdr. Anthony Almon, visited CIWT’s largest schoolhouse, Information Warfare Training Command (IWTC) Corry Station, to learn how the Navy prepares its Sailors to fight and win across the information warfare spectrum.

    Master Chief Cryptologic Technician (Collection) Thaddeus Morris, a graduate of Port St. Joe High School, who was also a NJROTC program cadet, led the tour.

    “It’s a great honor to be able to be a part of the program as much as I can,” said Morris. “Being able to bring them here and let them see that there is something outside of our small town is very important. I’m hopeful that some of them will see that the military is a great opportunity for them, and they’ll be able to do great things.”

    The tour included discussions with instructors from each of the “A” schools at IWTC Corry Station to provide the cadets with a better understanding of each rating’s role in information warfare. During their time onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Corry Station, Florida, the cadets also visited the command’s cryptologic history display to learn about the events and people that shape modern information warfare.

    "I’d like to thank everyone here for giving us the chance to come here and learn how everything is run,” said Cadet Lt. j.g. Wesley Chapman. “This was a great opportunity to learn about the cryptology field, which is something I’m interested in going into.”

    While in Pensacola, the cadets also had the opportunity to visit the Naval Air Technical Training Center onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, view a practice session by the Navy’s Blue Angels flight demonstration team and attend a Blue Wahoos baseball game during a military appreciation night.

    Center for Information Warfare Training delivers trained information warfare professionals to the Navy and joint services, enabling optimal performance of information warfare across the full spectrum of military operations.
