NSA Crane acts as a steward of microwave tubes, printed wiring boards, pyrotechnics, radiation hardened devices and batteries. NSA Mid-South, Millington, Tenn., serves as the Navy's Human Resources Center of Excellence, enabling manpower management for the Fleet and long-term career management for Sailors and their familes.
