May 5, 2008. - I've placed some more info and pictures of Reunion 08 on the site today.  Several shipmates have sent in reunion pictures.   This will give those who could not attend an opportunity to get a glimpse of the gathering.

May 2, 2008 - Jeff Mason, both crews, 81 - 86 - has sent over 140 pictures of his time aboard the Key.  I've placed the pictures on the site in the 1980s photo area as well as in the Halfway Night area.  

May 2, 2008 - Changes coming soon - I received a lot of good suggestions for additions to the Key web site at the reunion.  There will be a Reunion 08 link active this weekend.  Also coming within the next few weeks will be new photo links for Rota and Holy Lock with photos of those former Key ports.  A new Plank Owners link will be created with pictures and info pertaining to Plank Owners.  New items will be added to the Key Ship's Store including a coffee mug and ship's plaque.  A Reunion 2010 link will be created with information regarding the selection of the next reunion site.   And lastly, I hope at least half of the people that "Promised" to send pictures actually remember to do so.  If they do, we would have some terrific new pictures to add to the history of the crew of the Key.
