Keigan Baker Memorial Fund

Airman First Class Keigan Baker, 24, a Special Tactics combat controller, was taking part in the Air Force Combat Dive Course Thursday, March 19, 2020, when he went missing just after 11 a.m., an Air Force statement confirmed.

The Longview, Washington native enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in June 2018 and was named an honor graduate upon completion of basic training. A spot in the Air Force’s illustrious two-year combat control program followed, leading to Baker’s participation in the Special Warfare Pre-Dive school at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland prior to joining the Air Force Combat Dive Course in Panama City.

Baker’s awards include the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, the Air Force Basic Military Training Honor Graduate Ribbon, the Air Force Training Ribbon and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

He was also the recipient a bachelor of arts degree from Eastern Washington University.

“We are very grateful for Keigan’s willingness to serve our nation and vow to honor his memory.” said U.S. Air Force Col. Matthew Allen, commander of the 24th Special Operations Wing.

Keigan's family is working to set-up a non-profit organization in his honor and memory.  The non-profit will be focused on mentorship of young individuals who are considering a career path in the Air Force Special Operations.
