This morning, Naval Station Norfolk’s Commanding Officer, Captain Janet Days, had the honor of serving as a keynote speaker at the Horton Wreath Society annual wreath placement event.

“For 247 years, the freedom we enjoy as Americans has been purchased at great cost by men and women who have confronted evil with courage and placed themselves in harm’s way to protect the American way of life,” said Days. “The character of our country is most clearly found in the courage of our veterans. To honor such bravery, it is right to participate in ceremonies like this one, to gather together in remembrance of those who answered the call to serve and continue to bestow that freedom.”

Since 2008, the nonprofit Horton Wreath Society has provided live balsam wreaths every holiday season for every grave site at the state-run Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk.

This year more than 13,250 wreaths were placed.

***NEW FACEBOOK SERIES ALERT!! KEEP READING FOR MORE DETAILS!!!

This year on October 13, the US Navy celebrated its 248th birthday! In our 248 years, Sailors from all walks of life have joined our ranks to perform a wide variety of jobs---or, as we like to call them, rates!

With the advent of new technology, many rates have been created which offer new and exciting opportunities for our Sailors to join the technological revolution and increase our warfighting capabilities and competitive edge. Other Sailors’ rates, however, saw their jobs get retired in the wake of new technology. We think it is important to keep our retired rates, and our Shipmates of old who filled those positions, alive by starting a new series on rates in the Navy: what are those ‘old’ rates that many people have forgotten? What did those Sailors do every day of their service?

To complement this new series, we will be posting photos of the rate’s insignia as depicted in the Naval Station Norfolk’s Catholic Chapel, Our Lady of Victory!

We will begin this series with Radioman (RM). Radioman specialized in communications technology and they were established as a rate in 1921. The RM’s had two specialty ratings Radioman (RMN) and Telegrapher (RMT).
Radioman maintained the Navy’s voice and tone-modulated radio equipment and handled classified message traffic. They also oversaw the destruction of classified messages. They operated on high and low frequency systems and associated peripheral equipment such as telegraphs, radio telephones, direction finder, and typewriters. These devices allowed them to send encrypted messages from ship to ship and ship to shore.

As technology progressed, however, the Radioman rate merged with the Navy Data Processing Technician (DP) rate. Herein lies the birth of the Information Systems Technician (IT) rating that we now have today. In order to earn the new IT rate, both RMs and DPs had to learn the new rate’s curriculum while taking computer based exams. The official transition to IT took place in November of 1999.
