Quinn Archie Keith
Birth: Oct. 3, 1982
New Mexico, USA
Death: Sep. 6, 2004
Anbar, Iraq

Lance Cpl. Keith of Blanding a weapons specialist, joined the Marine Corps fresh out of school graduating from Page High School in Arizona, where he was active in wrestling. The quiet young man loved fishing, hunting and wrestling. Keith was a Navajo and belonged to the Towering House clan and then to the Bitter Water clan. He was willing to go to war to sacrifice his life for his country and his reservation and he was scared to be there, but he knew he had to be. Clyde Keith and his wife, Shannon, became legal guardians for Quinn and his brothers, Stevenson, Chad, and Lance, several years ago after the youths' parents divorced. Quinn's mother, Leslie Kartchner lives in Salt Lake City. At Page High School, he was a second-string wrestler with a lot of heart. In one competition, when a first-string wrestler couldn't participate, Quinn stepped up and was victorious. He never lost his love for wrestling. Though he was small even after he bulked up in the Marines - 5-foot-6 and 135 pounds - he had recently taken on a much bigger opponent in a wrestling match in Iraq and, after a 30-minute struggle, came out on top. He was scheduled to end his tour in Iraq in just a little more than three weeks and planned to serve the remainder of his time in California. Semper Fi young man. He was 22.
