About Keith Helfrich, Sergeant Major. US Army
Keith Helfrich joined the Army in 1986 as an 11B (Infantryman). After years of training with the Rangers, Keith was assigned to 10th Special Forces. Keith lead the most elite soldiers on the battlefield as Team Sergeant and as a Sergeant Major. His combat experience includes Operation Just Cause, Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Operation Provide Comfort II, Bosnia, and Iraq.
Keith was awarded the Bronze Star Medal during Operation Iron Fist. Due to Keith’s planning and execution, the operation resulted in the capture of over 100 insurgents, the enemy surrendering the town of Salman Pak and zero friendly casualties. In 2012, with four tours in Iraq and after 26 years of service, Keith was medically retired after sustaining his last injury.
Keith currently lives in Texas with his wife Raquel and their three daughters. Keith started riding dirt bikes as a kid and has always had a bike although now he prefers a big V-Twin, and is looking forward to riding in the Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis.
The Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis and Nordic Components have joined together to present the 1st Annual Firearm Friday Shooting Competition during the 76th Annual Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™ August 8-14th.
