Bletchley_Circle PBS
PBS is currently featuring a 3 part murder mystery titled, The Bletchley Circle. The story focuses on four women who served as undercover codebreakers at Bletchley Park during the WWII and nine years later work together to use their unique talents to help solve a serial murder case. The show airs Sunday evenings with the final episodes airing 28 April and 5 May. If you missed the first episode, you can watch it online at PBS.org
A hitherto unknown variant of the German Enigma has appeared on display at the Bloomfield Museum in Jerusalem, Irael. The machine's original keyboard, lamp panel, wheels, and minor labels have been converted to the Hebrew alphabet.

Eagle Alliance trophy
The annual contribution from the Eagle Alliance Golf Tournament has often made a critical difference in the NCMF's ability to meet its obligation to the National Cryptologic Museum.

The first tournament was held in 2002, and the eleven tournaments held thus far have provided over $425,000 to support the NCMF mission.

The 12th annual tournament takes place on
7 June 2013. Many local companies pay $3,000 to sponsor a foursome to play. As tournament expenses are taken out of this fee, donations from members and supporters can help offset these expenses and increase the amount retained for support of the NCM. Please consider a donation to help make this year's event the most successful yet! Donate online or visit our Donate page for other options.

The NCMF serves to support the National Cryptologic Museum's objectives of educating the public regarding cryptology's role in national security; commemorating those who have made significant contributions to the field, and stimulating visitors' interest, as well as young people's interest in career fields that are essential to the success of agencies such as the National Security Agency.
