November 2007 - New Key web shipmates added in November 2007.  Borrell, Milton "Skip"  65 - 71 Plank Owner; Richey, John 72 - 74; Singer, George 64 - 68 Plank Owner; Carter, Dave "Otis" 80 - 83; Anthony, David - 1971; Cooper, Joseph 67 - 71; Krooner, Bradley 78 - 82.  Check the Crew List for details.

November 21, 2007 - We want to wish all former Key shipmates and their families a very happy and health Thanksgiving 2007.

November 20, 2007 - I just reformatted the Eternal Patrol area and add pictures where we had them.  If you have any pictures of a person on Eternal Patrol on the list, please send them in.

November 16, 2007 - OK all you plank owners, try to pull your heads out of that alcohol induced fog and take a look at the WHO? photo area and see if you can recognize anyone in the photos sent in by Joe Heflin.  They are probably half way night blue crew during one of the first patrols.  If you recognize anyone, let us know.

November 10, 2007 - Ivan Meixell - STS2 68 - 71 has been involved in an interesting project with the National Parks Service; Maritime Academy Charter School; The Delaware Valley Chapter of the United States Submarine Veterans of World War II (USSVWWII); The United States Submarine Veterans, Inc. (USSVI); and the Independence Seaport Museum to create Students, Stories, and the 'Silent Service' - an oral history project focusing on the personal experiences of submariners.  When you go to the first page you will see the Key's ships patch along with a picture of 3 Key shipmates.  Ivan is in the middle.  Check out the project at:

November 10, 2007 - The holidays are fast approaching and we still have many, many troops in harms way.  Shipmate Jeff Burke has found a way for all of us to send a message of support to the active military in Iraq, still out there on the wall.  Here is Jeff's E-mail:

"Let's all take the time to say thanks!!!   Something cool that Xerox is doing.
If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only takes a second. - Thanks, Jeff."

November 9, 2007 - Jeff Burke, RM1 Blue crew has sent in 31 great  pictures from 1986 - 87.  Check them out in the 1980's Photos area.

November 8, 2007 Shipmate Joe Heflin - Plank owner - has written some remembrances of his former roommate MT2 Nick Barth who died in 1968 in a hunting accident.  Read Joe's stories of Nick in Eternal Patrol.
