                                           IT'S NOT JUST ANY OLD BANNER

The Keith Banner was used on the Unsolved Mystery Television Program. Wm. Anderson a crewman aboard the Keith in 1945 beleived we had sunk a submarine of the California coast. He has spent a lot of time and money searching for the sunken sub.  He convinced Unsolved Mysteries to film a documentary on the possibility of the sinking. Bruce Mcvey has a tape of the documentary. The banner was given to Wm. Anderson and he gave it to Leonard Swanson who presented the banner to the USS Willard Keith Reunion Association.
