10th Special Forces Group soldier succumbs to injuries

A 10th SFG Soldier succumbed to his injuries Tuesday, originally sustained in an accident in early May 2017.

SFC Keith Martel, 39, of Stillwater, NY, was assigned to 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group, Stuttgart, Germany.

He is remembered by many as a loving husband, father, friend, and one who cared for others above himself. He was never one to be lacking jokes, and brought great life everywhere he went. If someone was ever in need, Keith never shied away from providing.

SFC Martel embodied the humble, Silent Professional. From having saved numerous lives on the battlefield, to his expertise of Operations, he always taught, and propelled those around him to excel. He is missed by many. Our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and teammates.
