Len Keller Scholarship of Honor

Leonard Keller had just turned nineteen when he was drafted in the spring of 1966. He completed basic training at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, went on to advanced infantry training at Fort Polk, Louisiana, then joined the 60th Infantry in Vietnam.

Sergeant Len Keller was awarded the Medal of Honor on September 19, 1968 by President, Lyndon Johnson for gallantry acts during Vietnam. Tragically, Len died after a motorcycle accident in 2009.

Keller served for two years in Vietnam, then worked for 28 more as a civilian in the supply department at Pensacola Naval Air Station.
