Litchfield Cavo Honors Veteran Family Members

Gregory S. Keltner, MO | St. Louis Office

Capt Hillary Keltner, United States Air Force, daughter of Gregory S. Keltner, a partner in our Litchfield Cavo St. Louis, MO office elected to attend the United States Air Force Academy because she was recruited to play on the women’s volleyball team and also wanted a challenging academic experience.

Upon graduation from the Academy in 2015, Hillary was commissioned as a 2nd Lt and currently holds the rank of Captain. Her initial assignment after graduation was in Space Operations. She is currently a cadet Instructor at the Air Force Academy and also teaches classes in International Management, and Power and Influence in Organizations. She has been assigned to the Academy Business Department upon completion of the MBA program at Auburn University.

When Hillary decided to attend the Academy, Greg and his wife Joan were concerned about how she would respond to the disciplined atmosphere of the Academy and also balance the vigorous academic and military demands of the Academy while participating in the Academy’s Division I volleyball program. As her achievements have been remarkable, Greg, Joan, and their other two daughters are very proud of Hillary and her ongoing commitment to the mission of the Air Force.

My nephew, Staff Sargent David P. Nowaczyk, honorably served in the United States Army. David was killed on April 15, 2012, while serving his country on what was to be his third and final mission. While serving in the U.S. Army, David was awarded two bronze stars, one with valor, two army commendation medals, one national defense service medal, and received a purple heart medal that was awarded posthumously. I remain incredibly proud of my nephew David, all the individuals who have chosen to serve our nation, and the families that have sacrificed for our freedoms.
