In college, a young Keith Sime fell in love. But not with a woman, instead with the allure of Naval aviation. After graduating Naval ROTC at Oregon State University, he joined the Marine Corps for a quicker transition into the pilot training pipeline. His first deployments were in electronic countermeasure aircraft – radar jamming and photographic tools in the sky. A tour to Vietnam introduced him to the Psy Op flights where he co-piloted and dropped leaflets over Vietnam. A second tour saw more direct action when he flew close air support missions in the F4 Phantom. His career spanned 20 years, a variety of aircraft, and when he left the service he never stopped moving. Keith is also a highly decorated runner. His wall of medals proves his effort. This is his story.
