Last Known Activity
Sergeant Keck deployed to the 35th Civil Engineer Squadron at Phan Rang, South Vietnam on November 12, 1968. He had been in the Air Force for 16 years. He died of a heart attack on October 12, 1969. Specific details regarding his death have not been discovered as yet, nor information on other units prior to Vietnam. His Air Force longevity would tend to indicate he might have served in Korea. The U.S. World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946 at reflect a Jay L. Keck, who enlisted on August 9, 1943. This may be the same Jay Lynn Keck, who perhaps was discharged in 1945 and returned to military service in 1953. However, no evidence has been discovered to date which would indicate he served in Korea or overseas in World War II.
