Author Kay Onda's New Book ''Keith'' is a Stunning Expose on the U.S. Military and How They Investigate Military Members' Deaths
Recent release "Keith" from Covenant Books author Kay Onda is a gripping story that examines the life and circumstances surrounding the death of the author's son after his passing while serving in the U.S. Navy was ruled a suicide by an internal investigation. Using his son's story, Onda calls for change within the military to protect those who give so much to serve their country.
NEW YORK, November 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Kay Onda, who received a Bachelor of Science degree in foreign language education and enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with family, has completed his new book, "Keith": an eye-opening account of the tragedy surrounding the death of the author's son, and the questions that remain to this day.
"Keith'' is about the first child of our family. "He had a generous spirit, a kind and loving soul, and a strong faith in God," writes Onda. He chose to join the navy to spare the family college expenses, which would have been a hardship for the family. He chose to work on ship engines. He received 'Sailor of the Month' award in 2005. Keith was assigned to the USS Champlain at the time. He detected a faulty engine part that could have caused a fire.
"In August 2012, our family received tragic news that Keith had committed suicide." We as a family were never given a thorough opportunity to ask and delve into Keith's death. According to a few generous individuals, there were signs at Keith's death scene that indicated otherwise.
"This is one case among many US service people's deaths that are so sudden and so unexplained. There needs to be a revamping of the military justice system. More independent investigators need to look into these deaths. What factors can be looked at other than the bias of a military investigator's list on what constitutes a murder? The nation gives its children to serve and defend our country. It must be the military's responsibility to look after our loved ones who give their lives to serve and protect, as well as being held accountable for the investigation and true explanation behind their deaths."
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Kay Onda's new book calls upon those in power to fix the broken system that allows injustices within the military to continue. A raw and honest novel, readers will discover what many military families experience and the confusion and hurt experienced by families whose children are not protected by those in power.
Readers can purchase "Keith" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
