August 2006 KEY NEWS

August 2006 - New web shipmates added in August.  Holiman, Norman; Mercer, Chuck; Elger, Al; *Swanson, Theodore.  Check the Crew List for details.

August 27, 2006 - "Who are those guys?" Butch said to Sundance and we wonder too.  Who are the shipmates and events in these pictures? Can you help identify them and when they were taken and what was going on.   All are from the 1977 - 1982 era, we think. Some have already been identified (9/2/06)

August 19, 2006 - Another new area - Awards.  The Key was awarded one NUC and one MUC during its years of service.  Read about them by clicking on Awards on the left side of this page.  

August 13, 2006 - We have created a new area - Overhauls - dealing with the overhaul periods that the Key went through.  Our thanks to Jeff Buss for the tremendous amount of material he provided dealing with the overhaul in Newport News from 1982 - 1985.  Be sure to check it out along with the new pictures in the 1980's area.

August 3, 2006.  I found an interesting web site created by the Smithsonian Museum called Fast Attacks and Boomers.  Click to check it out. They have an exhibit at the National Museum of American History.  If anyone has seen the exhibit in the museum, please e-mail us what you thought of it.

August 1, 2006 - There are Key shipmates that are still on active duty.  I have denoted their names on the crew list in bold letters.  If you are on active duty, please update your status by using the form on the Crew List page and putting "Active Duty" in the comments section.
