Keith Anthony Miller was born on 1/22/93 in Glendale, Queens, NY. He grew up in East Islip, Long Island, NY. He loved sports and video games. He was intelligent, always came home with excellent grades and never had to study. He joined Civil Air Patrol when he was 13. He competed in Color Guard Competitions and Drill Competitions. He attained the rank of 2nd Lt. and received the Billy Mitchell Award. He was on the high school football team his freshman year and on the HS wrestling team his junior year. Throughout his high school years he always spoke about going into the military. After graduation, he tried his hand at college. It really was not what he wanted to do. He wanted to join the Marines. In February, 2012, he left for boot camp. He graduated Parris Island in May, 2012. He finished his MOS in Pensacola, FL in May of 2013 as a Radar Tech and was stationed at MCAS, Yuma, AZ (3rd MAW, MACG-38, MACS-1, Det C). On Sept 1, 2015, in Yuma, AZ, Cpl Keith A. Miller died by suicide. It was a shock to all his fellow Marine Brothers and Sisters, all of his friends and family back home. No one saw any signs of his struggles. He had a sarcastic sense of humor. He was compassionate and always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need. He could be relied on to get the job done. Keith made a lasting mark on anyone who knew him and certainly made a mark in this world. He will forever be loved and missed.
