Meet your BVA Vice President

October 10, 2019

Kevin Ayers is a familiar name to many Beirut Vets and family members and now he is your BVA Vice President.  Kevin joined the Corps in 1980 and served in Beirut with the 2531 Radio Men with MSSG 24 from May to November 1983 as Lance Corporal.  Kevin returned to Camp Lejeune where he was stationed with the 2nd Medical battalion until leaving the Corps in 1984.

After leaving the Corps, Kevin entered the commercial printing industry where he has worked since 1987.

Kevin has been very involved in the BVA for the last decade in an informal capacity as a life member.  Though he has not held a formal office until now, he has been very involved, including participating in the Memorial Day parade for 8 years and attending the Memorial in North Carolina during the past 12 years, making it there more frequently in the past 5 years.  

Other than the BVA, Kevin is involved with the American Legion, VFW, and local Sportsman’s Club where he served as president for 5 years.   

In his spare time Kevin enjoys kayaking, hunting, and fishing. He enjoys the outdoors and gets to travel for work.     

Kevin says he is looking forward to working with the board and for members in the future.  He also wants members to feel free to contact him for any needs or questions. His email is [email protected]
