January 11, 2008 - Received an e-mail from Stan Rarden informing us of the passing of Charles "Chuck" Cashion MMCS M-Div Gold Crew 76 - 77.  I've added Chuck to the Eternal Patrol page along with Stan's comments and a newspaper article written shortly before Chuck's death.  If any of his shipmates would like to add any comments to his memorial, just send them to

January 9, 2008 - Just added some new product pictures to the Key Ship's Store.  Check out the Polo Shirts, Kids and Adult T-shirts and Denim shirt.

January 8, 2008 - Received an e-mail from the daughter of QMCM Thomas J. Stebbins, plank owner and first COB of the Gold crew, that her father had passed in May 1995.  I have added Thomas to the Eternal Patrol page along with his daughters e-mail.  If any of his shipmates would like to add any comments to his memorial, just send them to

January 5, 2008 - Some of you attending the reunion might be traveling with pets.  If so, shipmate Ivan Meixell sent along this info: 

My wife Marianne and myself are staying at the Clarion just up the road from the Groton Inn. Little more expense, but less hassle regarding pets. Might be a good idea to inform other Key mates if they are or want to travel with their pet companions.

January 3, 2008 - A note from Diane Singleman of the Reunion Committee: I just spoke with the Groton Motor Inn. Only 12 people have so far reserved a room. Can you put some kind of a note on the reunion list page to remind everyone to reserve a room at the motel.  It does not get billed on your credit card until you are actually there, so people don't have to worry about adding to there credit card debt.  I'm also working on the registration form for the banquet and should have it done by next  week. If all goes as planned, Al will also finally get pictures for the  ships store this weekend.
