Can you solve this puzzle?

NSA

In the spirit of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, NSA challenges you to solve this puzzle. The good news is that you don’t need to wait to receive a decoder ring in the mail! Everything you need for the solution has been provided.

Our puzzle does not require a large cryptography or computer science background to solve. For those interested in the history of ciphers, check out the Cryptologic Museum at https://www.nsa.gov/about/cryptologic-heritage/museum/exhibits/

We’ll be interested in hearing from you about how you went about solving it. And don't worry, unlike Ralphie's secret message, our encoded message will not remind you to drink your Ovaltine!
