Bill Keen

    Thanks to Bill Keen for providing us with an invaluable bit of history from July 26, 1969. Bill sent me the following sheet of patrol assignments that includes names, rate and rank with the boat numbers for each crew and the crew that they ran with that day.  There were submitted by LT(jg)  A.V. Bartlett USNR of River Division 513.

     Below are a few photos that I took today (March 4, 2003) of Bill and his work. What amazes me about Bill is that he works in so many different mediums (wood, stainless steel, bronze, steel to name a few) but that he is self taught and does everything right there in his workshop. He even built his own band sawmill. Bill is really a self reliant guy and depends on no one.

I am also including a link to Bill's photos on so you can see his photos there. The link is:
