December 4, 2009 - We just received the sad news of the death of the daughter of Jack & Joyce Harden in Greenville, SC on Thanksgiving Day.  Jack was a radioman on the gold crew of the Key from 77 - 80.  Rick Wise, COB of Charleston Base USSVI, sent us this e-mail exchange he had with Jack.  Our deepest sympathies go out to Jack and Joyce.


We've just learned of the death of Jack & Joyce Harden's daughter, Carroll. Jack's email is below. If you would like to send a card their address is:

To All

Joyce and I had everything but a good Thanksgiving.

We went to Charlotte NC on Wednesday to spend the holiday with my nephew, his family and my sister.  Learned that night that my oldest daughter Carroll went to the hospital in Greenville SC with some problems. Without going into great detail, we got a call Thursday morning to get to Greenville if we wanted to see her again.  Started out to Greenville about 10:00 AM and when about halfway there we got a call that Carroll had passed away.  The cause was a blood infection, pneumonia and eventually a heart attack.

 The funeral was held in Greer SC on Saturday. Good crowd and lots of friends

So that is where I have been


 December 3, 2009 - We hope to have some reunion 2010 news soon so check in every so often.
