Colonel Keel was handling security at the KIVA Laboratories in Bannon, New Mexico when an explosion destroyed the facility. When Ed Gantner and MacGyver arrived by helicopter, Keel escorted the pair to the facility, and he and his men prepared to take the drastic steps of flooding the complex with sodium hydroxide and launching an underground missile at the facility's foundation if MacGyver was unsuccessful in stopping a sulfuric acid leak from reaching the aquifer. Under orders from Dr. Burke, the director of the facility, Keel gave the order to launch the missile that would destroy the complex, then aborted the launch at the last second when MacGyver signaled that his mission had been successful.
