Army Pvt. Nalley was assigned to the 501st Military Police Company, Wiesbaden, Germany. Nalley was escorting a convoy in a HMMWV when a heavy equipment transporter crossed the median and struck his vehicle in As Samawah. Kenneth was well known in his hometown because he had worked at a local gas station for almost three years. Bob Cooper, a mechanic at Hamburg Oil who spent 22 years in the Army, had counseled him that joining the Army and gaining some experience as a military policeman could give him an edge when apply for a police job. "He didn't smoke," Cooper said. "He didn't drink. He didn't do drugs because he wanted to be a policeman. That was his way to make sure that he didn't have any troubles, so that he could get to that position in life." Kenneth enlisted in the Army for a five-year hitch last July, just a month after graduating from high school.
