DOC Campbell's family Family ...

On November 14, 2006 the Fort Sam Houston Library was rededicated the KEITH A CAMPBELL MEMORIAL LIBRARY in memory of Sp/4 Keith Allen Campbell, my brother. Keith knowingly and willingly laid down his life in the service of our country to save his fellow comrades. Keith?s heroic actions earned him our Nation?s second highest award for valor, the Distinguished Service Cross. You may read about Keith and more about the library dedication below.

Sp/4 Campbell brings great distinction to this honor. Keith wanted to be an Army doctor and we find it fitting that others remember him in this meaningful way. Fort Sam is the home of the combat medic. The library has something to offer every age level. In addition to the variety of printed materials, which include newspapers from a number of major cities and popular magazines, the library offers videos, tapes, CDs; study guides for College-Level Examination Program, Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, college entrance, post office and civil service exams. Various equipment is also available, i.e. copiers, typewriters, word processors, reader-printers and cassette players. The ?Career Corner? is a popular spot which offers investment services, fax service, federal tax forms during tax season, consumer information and my personal favorite is the computer lab with 12 personal computers, internet access as well as selected databases for research. This library does not stop there; displayed artwork can not only be enjoyed and viewed but can be checked out and enjoyed at home until individuals have their base homes established.

When you enter the library on the right is a 20 x 30 bronze plaque, which contains Keith?s Distinguished Service Cross Citation. Inside is a display case which houses his casket flag, medals, medic bag and his portrait. Sculptor Andrew Chernak has offered to design a bronze dramatic scene with Keith?s likeness depicting his final actions, which awarded him the DSC. This likeness will be historically accurate and of the highest detail level, in the school of 19th Century realism. The cost of this bronze dramatic scene is $14,500.00. Mr. Chernak is a well known and respected sculptor and veteran. I?m pleased to say I had the opportunity to attend the unveiling of Mr. Chernak?s Gold Star Mother?s Monument in Putnam County New York and all in attendance were rendered speechless. Andrew indeed is a gifted artist. Our family is honored to have a fellow veteran devote his gifts and talents to historical Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TX, specifically the KEITH A CAMPBELL MEMORIAL LIBRARY.

I studied at that library in 2003.-Doc Wilson
