    I’m Jack Earl. I was honored to serve with Keith in the Army. We both served in Vietnam. Although Keith would never admit it he.was a genuine hero. He received the Army Comendation medal for his heroism during the Tet offensive in 1968. This medal came with a “V” device for valor. I believe he could have merited a higher medal such as the bronze star. I was part of the headquarters staff which worked the medal processing. Keith was among several soldiers to receive this medal. I am deeply saddened by his passing.
