Graduating from the United States Naval Academy, Keith served in the Naval Aviation community, completing extended overseas deployments to the North Atlantic, Mediterranean, Middle East, and South American areas of operation. He commanded Patrol Squadron 23, Brunswick, Maine and Patrol Wing 11, Jacksonville, Florida.
Following his 26 year military career, Keith has worked with the United Service Organizations (Chief Operating Officer & SVP Global Operations); Enterra Solutions (Chief Operating Officer & SVP Government Relations); Force Protection Industries (SVP, Business Development, Marketing & Communications); and Northrop Grumman Corporation-Aerospace (Campaign Lead – International Programs).

He is also a Life Member of the United States Naval Academy Alumni Association.
Keith’s long-term association with Pets for Patriots has been driven by two passions: his desire to “give back” to our veterans, America’s true heroes; and ensuring shelter pets are provided a “second chance at life” in the home of a military veteran. Keith has served on the Pets for Patriots board since inception and was elected Board Chairman 2016.
