Welcome to my site to Honor the Sailors aboard the
USS Key West Fast Attack Los Angeles Class Submarine.
I am new at this so be patient and I will try to do my best.
My name is Shan Marler and my main reason for doing this is my son Leonard Marler joined the Navy back in 1999 and decided to serve on a submarine. His uncle Kish Marler served aboard the Blueback 581 back in the mid 80's. His grandfather served in the Air Force back in the 50's and most of his great uncles were in the Navy in the late 40's to 50's.
My goal is to let you know about the Submarine itself and try to introduce you to the crew. So in order for this to work I will need past and present crew members to help out and send picture's and stories about their time on the Key West.
So look around and I hope you learn about these brave sailors who are out there day and night doing what is necessary to help keep you and me safe.
And anyone that can send in Pictures, Stories, Poems. Please do!
As a father of one of our military men I would like to have all that view this page to take time out of his or her day to say a special prayer for all of those affected by the WTC attacks.
And also a prayer for our sons, daughters, fathers, mothers who are currently serving their country.
