Meet Keith Moser

Keith Moser originally joined the Army straight out of high school to earn money for college. Upon serving four years of service and returning to home Centerport, Pennsylvania, Moser realized he wanted to go back. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University in the ROTC, Moser was commissioned into the Infantry as an Officer in 1993.

Throughout Moser’s 20 year military career, from which he retired in 2013, his service has supported U.S. efforts in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn, and operations in the Persian Gulf Theatre. He has held positions as Platoon Leader, Company Commander, Battalion Operations Officer, Brigade Executive Officer, and Deputy Brigade Commander. He also served as the U.S. Military Advisor to the two Saudi Arabian National Guard Brigade Commanders responsible for the security of Mecca and Medina from 2005 to 2006.

“I have been privileged to be around some of the most brilliant and talented leaders at all levels. They have continually forced me to reassess my own leadership style,” he says. “Hopefully I am a better leader today because of their influence.”

To this day he lives by the tenets of the Ranger Creed, as his proudest moment from his 20 years was graduating from the Ranger School, a selective and intensive 68 day course that focuses on combat leadership for small-unit tactics. “It taught me a lot about myself and showed me my strengths and weaknesses.”

Upon retirement from the military, Moser moved to Framingham, where his wife’s family has been living for generations. He annually cheered friends and family running the Boston Marathon. Soon after that, he decided to become involved himself, and participated in the B.A.A. Tough Ruck (a march held in Lexington and Concord around race weekend) in both 2016 and 2017. He is also a runner, and completed last year’s B.A.A. Half Marathon representing Team Red, White, and Blue and carrying the American Flag.

Although he retired from the military in 2013, Moser remains involved through his service with Team RWB as a Veterans Outreach Director for the Boston Chapter. On April 16th, Moser will run the Framingham leg of the relay to inspire other Veterans to keep motivating and challenging themselves to move forward.
