August 2008 Key News

August 2008 - New Key shipmates added in August 2008.  Norrholm, Leif 67 - 69; Smithhart, Lewis 69 - 73; Dyer, Raymond 91 - 93; Marrah, Thomas 77 - 80; Bryson, Michael 69 - 72; Swisegood, Charles 73.  Check the crew list for details.

August 29, 2008 - The Key web site hit a milestone today as the 20,000th visitor entered the site.  We hit this number in just under two years as I put a counter on the site on Sept 14, 2006.  I hope the site brings back fond memories to all and allows shipmates to reconnect.  Just recently, a person did a Google search of his high school best friend from the late 1980s.  He was very surprised when the results came back with a picture of his long lost friend standing in the missile compartment of the Key.  The picture was in our 1990s photo area and had his friends name below it.  He e-mailed me and the two were able to reconnect.  That is one reason why it is important to try to get names for everyone in the pictures and to have your name on the Crew List.

August 27, 2008 - Shipmate Jeff Buss just informed us of the recent retirement ceremony for Key shipmate Mike Jarvis.  We want to send along our kudos to Mike for a very fine navy career and to welcome him to the ex-navy life.  Below is a copy of the announcement that Jeff sent along.

"The Deputy Commander Naval Inventory Control Point, Mechanicsburg Requests the pleasure of your company at the retirement Ceremony of Senior Chief Storekeeper (SS) Michael A. Jarvis, USN
On Friday, the twenty second day of August, Two-Thousand and eight at ten O'clock in the morning at Bldg 14, Naval Support Activity Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.  A reception will immediately follow the retirement ceremony. Please RSVP to michaeljarvis@verizon.net by Friday, 15 August 2008."

August 24, 2008 - Shipmate Cory Curtis recently sent in 112 pictures of the Key from the 1990s and are all located in the 1990s photo area.  They show the last missile offload, last Change of Command ceremony in Charleston, transit through the Panama Canal,  and a Ceremony at USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii.  I want to thank Cory for taking the effort to gather these pictures and get them to the Key web site for everyone to enjoy.  These fill in several holes in the Key's history.
