C. 20507 Dear Admiral Turner, The Association of Old Crows would like to have you as the featured speaker at our annual award banquet. The banquet will be held at the Washington Hilton Hotel on October 26, 1977, with 2500 or more AOC members and guests in attendance. The AOC membership is composed of people from the military, govern- ment, educational institutions and industry, who are involved and concerned with the field of electronic warfare. Our national or- ganization, with some 9,000 members, is an individual membership organization which is not affiliated with industry, in fact we do not have any corporate members. The AOC as an organization sponsors national and local symposiums and meetings concerning electronic warfare. These symposiums, which are classified are designed to keep the people involved in electronic warfare aware of the technical advances in the field as well as current and future requirements. Dr. Perry's office, DDR&E, is sponsoring the 1977 DOD/AOC Electronic Warfare symposium, which is our National Annual Symposium. The sym- posium will be conducted on the 25, 26, and 27th of October at the National Bureau of Standards at Gaither'sburg,Maryland. Mr. Lyn Cosby Superintendent of Tactical Electronic Warfare, at NRL, is the sym- posium chairman. Mr. Cosby and his committee have structured a high technology program that should be of great interest to your agency. I have enclosed a copy of the proposed program for the symposium as well as a general information sheet on the convention and symposium. I sincerely hope that you can find the time in your busy schedule to honor us with a presentation at the banquet. In the event that you desire additional information, please give me a call.
