Introduction

This web page is intended to spread knowledge about the plight of Richard Keech. Richard Keech is a marine who served his country in World War 2, endured captivity in a Japanese prisoner camp, and after decades of life as a productive citizen, found himself in a California prison alongside hardened criminals.

Thanks to the response to the Web Page and letters sent to Senators, Representatives and top Officers of the State of California by concerned readers and Richard’s family and friends, Richard was transferred from Salinas Valley State Prison to CMC East in San Luis Obispo where he is receiving the medical care he needs.

We will be featuring Richard’s letters to pen pals he has met through these pages on a regular basis.

Richard loves to receive visitors. He is an attentive listener and a fascinating story teller. His mailing address is:
