Today a true Whitehall hero returns home. He’s not some washed up former Zephyr basketball hero turned attention whore, or some sordid politician looking to expand his or her influence. The man I refer to is Whitehall native Sgt. Adam Keys, US Army. Keys was wounded when a roadside bomb went off underneath the convoy he was riding in. Keys’ lost three limbs in the attack and has endured intense physical therapy and numerous medical procedures during his recovery. The same attack claimed the life of Keys’ best friend and Whitehall native Spc. Jesse Reed.
Keys will be escorted to Cementon Park by the Warriors Watch Riders where his friends and family will meet him. His arrival is scheduled for 1 PM today. I hope all of you who are able to, decide to go out and say thank you to this young man.
Keys and Reed are the absolute best that Whitehall have to offer. Men like these are our pride and joy. The aren’t high school basketball heroes, they are American heroes.
Please come welcome Keys home today.
