Corry Station - An Historic Perspective
The original Corry Field had its beginning in 1923 in a remote area north of Pensacola, with relocation to its present
site in 1928. The station honors Medal of Honor winner LCDR William M. Corry Jr., who died as a result of burns received
while attempting to rescue a fellow officer from a crashed and burning aircraft. LCDR Corry was one of Naval Aviation's
pioneers, having been among the first aviators to receive the Navy's "Wings of Gold." In the beginning, Corry Field was
an active aviation training complex where advanced fighter plane techniques were taught. In 1943, the field was
re-designated as Naval Auxiliary Air Station, continuing to serve as a training center for aviators through World War
II and during the Korean conflict, until its decommissioning in 1958. The site saw its metamorphosis from flight training
to technical training in 1960, when the first class of communications technicians (later known as cryptologic technicians)
arrived. Hangars were converted to classrooms and laboratories were stocked with sophisticated communications training
equipment. To reflect this change, the Chief of Naval Operations changed the name of Corry Field to Naval Technical
Training Center (NTTC), Corry Station in 1973. NTTC Corry Station was among the first Navy technical schools to be
accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. This accreditation certified that the instruction offered
at NTTC was of the same quality as that offered in the best civilian vocational institutions, and that students could
receive college-level credit for completed courses.
By 1982, Corry Station had become the largest command in the Pensacola Naval Complex, and its change from air facility to
technical training was reflected by a change of appearance in the form of new buildings and facilities. By 1990, the base had
expanded even more to incorporate the Opticalman/Instrumentman School, which closed in 1996.
In 2003, Naval Technical Training Center, Corry Station officially became the Center for Cryptology, Corry Station, as part
of the Chief of Naval Operations establishment of Navy Learning Centers in support of the Revolution in Training.
In 2005, Center for Cryptology, Corry Station and the Center for Information Technology, San Diego merged to become the
Center for Information Dominance Corry Station. This merger integrated training responsibilities for the four key
disciplines of information dominance under one Learning Center.
While Corry Station's role has changed over the years, traditional pride continues to dwell within our team, as we work
together to provide the finest and best-trained personnel to the fleet for a tactical advantage in the information domain.
