June 29, 2001: Monthly update of the Crew Roster.  Let me know if the pages are getting too big and slow loading.  I will cut them down to even more sections.

June 19, 2001: Added the latest news letter to the News Letter page.  I am in the process of sorting and preparing photos to be added to the site.  Kind of a tedious process, but it's getting there.

May 18, 2001: Updated the Crew Roster.  Email addresses are now click-able hot links.  Still working on a way to be able to search the page by date of service, but that's proving to be a tough one.

May 18, 2001: Some general clean up work done.  A new photo on the Commanding Officers page, and other behind the scenes things that aren't really noticeable to the naked eye.

May 10, 2001: Changed the sizes of the columns on most of the pages, the site is now optimized for 800 X 600 resolutions.  For those of you with higher resolutions, you'll have more "empty" space when you're looking at the site.  Those with the lower resolutions will be able to see the pages without having to scroll from side to side on each page now.  A reasonable trade off, I believe.
