Thomas "Keith" Wilson
Thomas "Keith" Wilson
Class of 1962
Navy, 6 Years

Keith began his military career as many young men did at the time, via the military draft. He chose the Navy and headed to bootcamp in San Diego, California where he was given the opportunity and chose to do service aboard a nuclear submarine. While in service he was stationed in Honolulu, Hi, San Diego, CA, and New London, Ct. As a kid he told me his duties which included everything from guard duty, mess cooking, & actually hearing the sound of a torpedo which had been launched toward his boat. He traveled the world underwater quietly floating close to locations James Bond might have visited. As time went on he was almost a part of the search for the unfortunate loss of the Submarine U.S.S. Scorpion. Due to getting married during the time of the search he was not aboard his sub. Eventually he chose to use the G.I. Bill, go to Oklahoma State University and get his degree. From here he ended up going to OU law school, becoming an attorney and eventually a judge for the state of Kansas. In talking to him he has told me many stories, but many of my favorites not only include his time in Newkirk, but also his stories from the experiences aboard a sub for the U.S. Navy. He still has pics hanging in his office.
