Knowing what possible dangers lay ahead is an advantage for any military service.  The U.S. Navy is no exception.  Talented code breakers, data analysts, and other experts are trained and used by the U.S. Navy to understand the world around them and pass along important information to leadership to help decision-making.   Join us as we talk about intelligence technology, learn to make a crack code and also share the story of he career of Lieutenant Susan Ahn Cuddy, the first Asian American female to serve in the U.S. Navy.  Born in Los Angeles, California, in 1914 of Korean descent, Cuddy joined the Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES) in 1942.   Upon exiting the WAVES in 1947, she went to work for the National Security Agency (NSA) in Washington, D.C. before moving back to Los Angeles in 1959.   Museum Educator, Mike Galloway, will lead the discussion.
