February 22, 2009 - I received the following e-mail today from the grandson of Marjory Key Thorne:

Hello, my name is Steven Lyon. My Grandmother was Marjory Key Thorne, one of the christeners of the Francis Scott Key and I want to thank you for your keeping up this website.  I served 8 years active duty in the USCG as a electricians mate.
Thank you once again for maintaining one of my grandmothers proudest accomplishments.
 
Steven M. Lyon Sr.

February 17, 2009 - Today we received notice of the passing of Jack Dreher, Fire Control Tech in the late 60s.  I have added Jack to the Eternal Patrol list.  If you served with Jack and would like to add any comments to his memorial area, please send e-mails to ssbn657@comcast.net.  Our sincere regrets go to Jack's family, and to Jack we can only say - Sailor, rest your oar - job well done.

February 5, 2009 - The Reunion Committee has  received a detailed proposal from Gary Walters for hosting the 2010 Key Reunion in Milwaukee, WI.  To see the proposal and to comment on it just click REUNION INFO.

February 3, 2009 - I created a new area simply called PORTS.  It lists the various ports of call and home ports that the Key visited over its career.  It will contain pictures and sea stories about each location so take a look.  I've begun with the Panama Canal.  It is still a work in progress but it will show you what I am trying to do.  Let me know if I missed any locations and also send in any pictures or stories you have.
