While working on this list, I found some place where the dates on the NSA wall don't match up with dates on other virtual walls. Looks like another project.

Commendable work, CMDCM (Ret). My experience doesn't reach back that far, but it seems at one time there was a fair amount of cooperation between USN CTs and USMC Radio BN. Does that still happen to a similar degree?

BTW, in a related matter, in the '90s I was working on possibly embarking a RBN team on an SSN ISO MEU(SOC) operations, but never got a chance to make it happen. Still think it could have been an interesting force multiplier.
