The Wenger Commander Naval Security Group Command Display

Story board for the Battle of Midway. The four Japanese Carrier pictures (left side of story
board) were donated by two Japanese Naval Officers from the National Intelligence Office,
Tokyo, Japan. The American Carriers (right side of board) includes the names of the Radio
Intelligence Unit officer and enlisted personnel assigned to the carriers.

The display cabinet tells the story of the Battleship Oklahoma band, and the Combat

was in charge. Pictures of Rochefort, LT Tom Dyer and LT Jasper Holmes. Also a picture
of YN2 William Trembly, stationed in Melbourne, Australia, who actually decrypted the first
message indicating an attack on Midway Island.
