PEARL HARBOR (Sept. 11, 2018) Patrick Wilson, right, who portrays U.S. Pacific Fleet intelligence officer Lt. Cmdr. Edwin Layton in the upcoming movie "Midway," tours U.S. Pacific Fleet headquarters. Here he tours an unclassified outer office dedicated to heritage of the World War II information warfare specialists who helped win the war in the Pacific. Leading his tour is the U.S. Pacific Fleet's intelligence officer, now-retired Navy Capt. Dale Rielage. Here together they review Fleet intelligence officer portrait board - with Layton's picture being the first in a long line of naval officers who have served in the 75 years since. Layton's picture is in the upper right. Wilson's portrayal of Layton reflects how information warfare professionals quietly and literally helped save the world 75 years ago. In today's connected 21st-century information landscape, the importance of naval information warfare professionals is increasingly important to national security - at war and in peace.
