Keel-Haul graduated from Annapolis and Navy Flight School, and flew Phantom F-4's off the Intrepid in the late 1960s. He attended the Naval War College in Newport, RI and the Armed Forces Staff College, and is a holder of the Navy Cross, DFC and Air Medal. He is a respected military historian, a nationally-rated chess player, and a clarinet player of questionable talent.
I've been meaning to do this figure for quite a while. But when it came time to paint, I decided not to give him the mismatched uniform items (Officer's khaki pants, Enlisted man's blue shirt, Officer's dress white cap) and go with a proper U.S. Navy uniform. I dug up a bunch of photos to make sure that I got the details as correct as possible.
Wish I was there!
