Before he ever came to command the U.S.S. Flagg, Keel-Haul gained the reputation as one of the best pilots in the Naval air force. He flew F-4 Phantoms back in the day. He is so cool even under pressure that he is capable of the seemingly impossible task of landing his jet fighter on an aircraft carrier's deck at night and he did it in the unusual situation of having most of his instruments damaged from a dogfight. The people who saw him that day claim that when he walked off, he didn't seem bothered by the experience at all.

His aides noted how his great knowledge of military history and chess (he's a nationally-rated player) have gotten his carrier group out of tight situations. If need be, he is willing to double as an extra fighter pilot. Still, nobody wants to tell him to stop playing the clarinet.

Despite the U.S.S. Flagg playing a prominent role in several episodes, Keel-Haul is conspicuously absent, replaced by Admiral Ledger as commanding officer of the aircraft carrier. Due to this, he is one of only three characters made into an action figure during the series' run to not also appear in it (the other two being Grand Slam and Claymore).
