 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Keith was killed during a four day battle near Camp Carroll, against the 324th Division of the North Vietnamse Army, while retaking control of Rt 9, the main artillery supply route to Khe Sahn. The battle details are proudly chronicled in Marine history. The "tigers" of the 3rd Bn / 4th Marines were congratulated by General Thompkins, the 3rd Marine Division commander, and received the "Meritorious Unit Commendation" from the Secretary of the Navy. Keith's sacrifice and bravery will never be forgotten.
