The USS McKee was a submarine tender from 1980 through 1999. It was one of first ships to integrate female sailors and as a consequence was also known as the "Love Boat" for the many relationships that sprung up during the early 1990s.

USS McKee AS 41 was named for Rear Admiral Andrew I. McKee who was born in Lawrenceburg, KY.

Anybody who is good at genealogy research, please check and see if he is related to P. L. and Gertrude McKee of our Camp McKee?

Whether or not, pretty cool to have had a naval ship and our Camp with the same name!
