Biography

I (Kenneth Keil), grew up in Greeley, Colorado, a small town located approximately 50 miles north of Denver. I was raised by my parents David and Rita, brought up with one older sister named Charlotte. My father is a heating and cooling engineer, and Army Veteran. My mother is a stay at home mom. I spent my early years playing team sports like soccer, football, and baseball, as well as learning about the great outdoors from my father.

At 23 years of age, I decided that I wanted to make a change in my life, and wanted to have the ability to be a strong provider for the woman I love, so I joined the army. Shortly before leaving for basic training, I was married to my lovely wife, Monica, in Loveland, Colorado. My first training unit in the U.S. Army, was Delta Company, 2-10 Infantry regiment (training), located at FT Leanardwood, MO. The training cycle I participated in was commended by our command team for our exemplarary marksmanship, and ability to exceed various military standards.

My next training station was Ft Huachuca, AZ, where I learned about interrogations, and conducting intelligence operations using confidential intelligence assets. Much of my training is classified, and therefore cannot be discussed. However, I did learn many other things in Arizona, and it was a period of immense personal growth.

After learning the art of interrogation, I was sent to FT Hood, TX, where I was assigned to the U.S. Army's most decorated intelligence battalion, the 303rd Military Intelligence Battallion. There, I spent all of my time honing my HUMINT skills in preparation for our vigourous deployment schedule. My first deployment was to Iraq, where I supported the missions of various battlefield commanders by collecting information from both detainees, and confidential informants. Over the course of my deploment to Iraq, I was assigned to several different units, located at several different combat outposts and forward operating bases. Our area of responsibility for the majority of the deployment consisted of areas in very close proximity to the Iranian border, where we monitered the activities of several terror cells, and mentored our Iraqi counterparts.

Following my deployment to Iraq, I had a brief recuperation period in back at FT Hood, before deploying to Eastern Afghanistan to work as the lead interrogator of an interrogation team. I spent roughly 8 months working in the busiest, and most productive interrogation facility in all of Afghanistan. We worked 12-18 hours a day, 7 days a week, speaking directly to unlawful enemy combatants who were literally just pulled off of the battlefield.

Within one month of finishing my final deployment, I also completed my contractual obligations to the military, and was honorably discharged from service. Upon recieving my discharge, I began using my G.I. Bill benefits to attend the University of Mary Hardin Baylor, where I studied Computer Information Systems. In just 2 years and 2 months, I completed my undergraduate degree, maintaining a 4.0 in my major and a 3.9 in my minor (Business Administration).

Now, the next leg of my life's journey has begun. My wife and I are moving to Austin, TX where she will manage the Starbucks in Georgetown, and optimistically, I will get a sweet job where I will learn to master my skills.

When I am not busy with school, you can usually find me in one of two places, either the gym, or at the lake. I enjoy working out, and maintaining my personal well being, by lifting weights, and running. I also greatly enjoy fishing, and spending time outdoors.
