The USS MCKEE was officially accepted
as a Submarine Tender of the United States
Navy during an enthusiastic ceremony at
the Seattle Lockheed Shipbuilding and
Construction Company, on August 15, 1981.
During the ceremony Captain D.S. GOR-
HAM read his orders from the Chief of
Naval Operations, ordering him to assume
command of the ship. LSCC President, L.
A. SMITH, wished the crew "happy and
smooth sailing aboard the MCKEE," and
added that the MCKEE "is a great ship . . .
and deserves a great crew." Additionally,
Rear Admiral J. D. WILLIAMS, the
Commander of the Naval Base, Seattle,
addressed to the large crowd, "Not only
does Lockheed think they've built a good
ship, the crew does too."

The principal speaker, Washington Congressman Norm
DICKS, praised LSCC for its "below-the-cost and
ahead-of-schedule performance" in its production of the
MCKEE. He continued, "I hope that performance
serves as a model to other shipbuildersn. The Executive
Officer, CDR G. R. WATERMAN, then ordered the
piping of the crew to quarters and the setting of the
first watch. At this point, the ship was officially
manned, and considered a working ship of the U. S.
