Key News for October 2006


October 2006 - New web shipmates added in October. *Mustin, James; Samuel, Michael; Saladine, Todd (active duty-SSBN 740); Carstaires, John; Newman, Kim; Carr, John.  Check Crew List for details.

October 20, 2006 - I have been contacting as many former Key Commanding Officers as I can find and asking them to write a brief history of their days as CO.  CAPT Tim France - Gold Crew  84 - 88 has just completed writing his history.  You can view it by clicking on COs, then clicking on his name.  It is fascinating reading.

October 19, 2006 - I found a couple of favorite recipes that will bring a smile and some memories of middle level ops on a Sunday morning.  Check out the new Crews Mess area.  10/22/06 Update: I tried to make S.O.S. - read about it in Crews Mess.  Now I know why they call it crews mess.

October 17, 2006 - We have just been notified of the passing of shipmate Terry McNinch.  He passed away on Sunday Oct 15, 2006 from a heart attack.  A memorial service is being held on Oct 18 in Stafford, VA, then Terry's cremated remains will be interred in Arlington National Cemetery in about 6 weeks.  See Eternal Patrol page for more info.

October 9, 2006 - Some new pictures of Key and crew during its first sea trials in St Croix and Puerto Rico in 1967 as well as pictures of Key departing Charleston on Patrol #1.  We want to thank plank owner Charlie Burrow TM2 Blue Crew for these great pictures.  Just click on 1960's  to see them.  Also, Charlie has some unique documents and souvenirs that I added to Key Papers area with more to come soon.

October 1, 2006 - Who was your Commanding Officer on the Key?  I am trying to compile a list of all the men who served as CO.  Check out this list.  If your CO is not there, please e-mail his name and years served to me at  10/18/06 - Still need help on some early gold crew COs.
