What does NAO mean here?
Last time I saw NAO it meant Naval Aviation Observer and I was working to get cryptologic officers authorized to wear them. The effort was successful and I was authorized to wear them at my change of charge ceremony in June 1978, about 2 weeks before anyone else because I was going to exchange duty with the USAFSS.
