Group Leader SOI West MCT
Marine Parent and Volunteer
Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Kevin has been a Marine Parents volunteer since November 2016. He served as Platoon Parent for Echo Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, MCRD San Diego, supporting the families of Echo Company recruits through the thirteen week boot camp cycle. He is now the Group Leader for SOI, MCT West.
Kevin is a High School Physical Education teacher and coaches soccer. He felt like supporting and giving guidance to fellow parents of recruits was right up his alley as it is similar to coaching athletes. Kevin was born in Abilene, Texas on Dyess Air Force base (his father was stationed there). Kevin graduated from the same High School in which he currently works and was an all-league baseball player, attended the local JC, then went on to Azusa Pacific University and continued playing baseball along the line. He met his future wife, Kim, while attending APU and they married in 1991. They just celebrated their 25th anniversary and have 2 boys, one their Marine and the other, a Junior in H.S. Kevin is an avid bass fisherman and fishes competitively in local tournaments in California.
Kevin joined the Echo Company Recruit Parents Facebook page and was inspired by the support and dedication of Crista, Company Leader for 2nd Battalion Echo Company San Diego along with Laura, Company Group Guide. He answered the call for volunteers and felt that he could help offer support and guidance while his son was in boot camp.
