The photograph shows Keeley in the uniform of a member of the Pakenham Station of Country Fire Authority (CFA) of Victoria.  He is wearing six medal ribbons and an Army Combat Badge.  He has no entitlement to any medals or badges.

 Although he has acted in a false manner, when approached, he was quick to admit his deception and asked how he could set the matter right.  Unfortunately for wannabes there is no consideration for remorse.  He was an experienced soldier and, because he was selected to attend RMC was of high intellect. 

 He is in direct contravention to the Defence Act 1903 Part VII parts 80A for falsely claiming to be a returned Veteran and 80B Improper use of service decorations.  Both these offences carry maximum fines of $3,300 or six months imprisonment or both.

 The false decorations he wears are the:

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM).

AFGHAN MEDAL.

IRAQ MEDAL.

Australian Service Medal (ASM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM).

NATO ISAF (AFGHANISTAN)

Army Combat Badge

Any reasonable person seeing Keeley in the CFA Uniform would conclude that he is a battle hardened Returned Veteran, which he is not.  Never at any time during his Army service was he deployed overseas. 

Keeley sought fame by posing as a Returned Veteran,  his fame will now come from his association with ANZMI.  He has been signed up for a long term deployment and will remain on this website for many years to come.
