About Kevin

The History of This Website

I originally started this site to vent of my disgust of modern day government structure and politics. It was geared towards expressing my conservative, constitutionally-driven thoughts and support of small government, lower taxes, and more freedom while maintaining the traditional values and principles that our nation was founded on. Shortly after, I joined the United States Marine Corps and decided to broaden the spectrum of topics and debate.

Helping Marines

I enjoy helping new Marines, old Marines and civilians that want to become Marines. You’ll find a lot of stories on this site that document the life of a Parris Island recruit, the happenings at Marine Combat Training, and the start of a Marine Reservist career. This website is not sponsored by the Marine Corps, and I take personal liberty in discussing my life, my values, my faith, my family and my opinions. Beware :)

There are a lot of questions that people have about the Marine Corps, boot camp, training, MOS school, Marine Corps history and a lot of other topics. My goal is to answer these types of questions, or point people in the right direction so that they can find what they need.

About Me

I love God, my family, my friends, basketball, shooting guns, collecting knives, hiking, camping, bowling, video games, swimming, boats, running, physical fitness, graphic design, website design, photography, learning, writing, reading, and pretty much anything that involves adventure or competition. My ambition is high, along with my expectations for myself and those around me.

Becoming a Marine

My drive to become a Marine had many parts to it. Love of country and call of duty were probably the most predominant reasons, but my regrets for not pursuing college basketball played a role as well. I found myself saying “I almost” and “I should have” when referring back to past opportunities. I did not want to make that same mistake with the call I felt to join the Marine Corps. See more on why I joined in this article.

I was not your typical Marine recruit. I was 26 years old, married and joining the Marine Corps reserves because it was something that I felt called to do. The Marine Corps was one of the best decisions that I ever made and I could not have done it without my wife, who has supported me every step of the way. Without the support of family and friends, my entire training process would have seemed impossible to complete.

In This Website

In this website you’ll find a variety of topics being discussed. It sort of exemplifies how my mind works. Never one-tracked, always roaming, searching, discovering, etc. I’ll be discussing a lot of different Physical Fitness and Physical Training methods and routines that have worked for me, as well as my faith, politics, reviews, and life in general.

Join In The Debate

I do my best not to censor ANYTHING on this website, unless it portrays hatred toward any person of gender or race, is too vulgar to to be considered structured debate, or contains an abundance of curse words. I want everyone’s opinion and thoughts. Interaction is the key to this site, so feel free to jump in with your thoughts.

Questions, answers or comments are always welcome. Enjoy!

Thank you for your time and be blessed!

  1. Hello,

    I’m 26 yrs old with 2 kids. a 5yr old and a 2yr old. I too have this strong calling to enlist. I would like to know how your life went after boot and how you and your wife dealt with it. Any insight would be great. Thanks.

  2. Hello Justin,

    The first and most important thing to consider is making sure that you’re wife us 100% on-board with your decision. Otherwise, it will not work, and I promise you that the Marine Corps is not worth losing your family. I told my wife before I joined that she was either 100% in support of me, or 100% against. She chose to support me… 110%

    It also depends on if you plan on going active duty or reservist. I would suggest reservist, unless your wife is okay with possibly living in CA, NC, or Japan. Being in the reserves will give you the freedom to live and work where you want outside of the MC.

    I know this doesn’t answer all of your questions, but fill me in with a little more details on what you’re thinking and I will be able to respond a little more directly.

    Thanks,

    Kevin Webb

  9. Great information! I posted your website onto my blog for my readers.

  10. Thank you, Holly! I will pass your blog onto my wife and add your link into my sponsors sidebar.

    Semper Fi!

  11. I just stumbled upon your blog and I think it is great. I’m in the process of writing my first book – and my fictional hero is a Marine Captain at Parris Island. I love the info, insight and commentary you give on boot camp, and the Crucible; which I had planned on incorporating into my story in some detail. I’m really enjoying surfing around your site.
    Thanks!

  12. I was wondering if you could tell me what is the sandpit ? what happens when your told to go to the pit?

  13. It is literally a giant sandpit. When you’re told to “go to the pit” then you go “get sandy” and PT until your heart is about to pop. Then you’re a sugar cookie for the rest of the day.

  14. Semper Fi, Kevin! I served 6 years active duty in our beloved Corps. I am now close to achieving a Master of Divinity at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Thanks for this blog! We do share a common point of view on many things! Keep up the great work. God Bless you and ALL LEATHERNECKS who are making sacrifices to keep us free!

  15. Kevin ever of the, “1902 Dick Act?” It essentially outlaws any gun control law.

    Keep up the good work!

  16. You sound like a great christian brother kevin my dad was a marine and I wanted to be but couldnt because of heart problems

  17. What is your MOS? You should list that in the “about you” section. Just wanted to know if I’m speaking to an 0311, 03XX type. If not… this site ain’t legit.

  18. Hey Eddie,

    If my MOS is the only defining element that validates my status as a Marine, then you do not belong on my website anyways.

    With that said, what I do in the Marine Corps requires anonymity.

    Semper Fi!

  19. Thanks for the insight Sgt. Our son Steven is almost done at Parris Island. Like you, older than the rest and already graduated college. His letters refer to MCT after a week of leave and we did not know what it was. Thanks for clearing that up and for your service! We are a military family for generations and so proud to continue the tradition. Although my husband and I are Army Brats and did not serve direct, still proud that service to our country is genetic via our son. Thanks for the info on your blog!

  20. Kevin,

    Enjoyed your review of the Glock model 26. I have a model 19 which I enjoy but have been looking for a smaller 9mm to carry concealed. Your review was spot on. I have a chance now of comparing a Gen.3 next to a gen.4 at one of the stores I get guns from and will be doing that next week. I will probably get the gen. 4 as it seems friendlier to left handed people.
    One other thing, I am a View Nam era Marine and am glad to see a fellow marine on the website.
