Dec 27, 2006 - We recently received about 300 photos, papers, etc from Jamie Briggs that we will be adding to the site over the next few weeks so stay tuned.  They are from the KeyGold web site that Jamie shut down about 6 months ago. Lots of good stuff on the way.

Dec 23, 2006 - Got this card from Harry Baker, an MT from the early 70's.  Harry got this from a friend and asked that I share it with all of you.  It is an example of the cards that the current crews are getting.  Brings back memories.

Dec 22, 2006 - A Merry Christmas wish to all the former Key shipmates and a big thank you to all the crew members that have submitted material to help build this web site into a living history of the crew of the Francis Scott Key.  On Christmas morning be sure to take a moment to remember the submariners who are on patrol today and also remember our shipmates on eternal patrol.

Dec 12, 2006 - 35 years ago Larry Cole, MM2 Gold Crew passed away, the only person to die onboard the Key.  Jerry Falls, Quartermaster on the Gold Crew recently wrote a brief description of the events of that tragic day.  You can read them in Eternal Patrol.

Dec 4, 2006 -  Here is a Key tidbit  submitted by Thomas Lee, MT2 in the late 70s.  Malcolm Wright, Key XO he thinks under CDR Hastie 75 - 78, was a technical advisor for the movie Crimson Tide.

Dec 3, 2006 - Today is the 40th anniversary of the commissioning of the USS Francis Scott Key.
