Heroes Added to Cryptologic Memorial Wall
SPC Joshua N. Nelson, USA and SrA Julian S. Scholten, USAF 

NSA Memorial Wall 2
At a recent memorial ceremony held at the National Security Agency, GEN Keith B. Alexander, Director, NSA/Chief, CSS paid special tribute to SPC Joshua N. Nelson, USA and SrA Julian S. Scholten, USAF, men who gave their lives, "serving in silence." 

SPC Nelson died in Afghanistan in September 2012, while operating as a member of a low-level voice intercept team supporting U.S. Special Forces and Afghan Commando Forces. His security element was overrun by insurgents and during the engagement, SPC Nelson and three other members of his security element were killed. 

SrA Scholten was a Tactical Systems Operator and was killed in February 2012 when his U28A reconnaissance plane crashed near Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, after returning from a combat sortie flown in support of a joint special operations task force.

The men's names were added to the Memorial Wall, which now lists the names of 171 individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice.
