Kelsey De Santis-Military Muscle-Real Talk- ep.1 w/ Andrew

I’m back in the studio with Andrew Cuthbert aka “ Dru Phoenix” … WE GO IN with some real talk and start having conversations that need to be had. That’s the point… It’s for us and our community to open up and share to whoever wants to listen. Thankfully everyone is starting to talk about 22 a day and other issues that so deeply affect our military/veteran community… WE are talking about the “THEN WHAT”… We are here to not only address different problems but, to also provide possible solutions. We all know that a problem without a solution doesn’t create positive forward movement or CHANGE!! Or as Andrew would say growth. We are starting by simply telling our stories… that’s what we are here to do… This is the 1st of many episodes to come. Please let me your thoughts. Thanks for watching and catch you next week! <<<3...

Video-cast Is HERE!

I realized a few months back that I really wanted to start getting into the Podcasting world. Sooo me being me I just jumped right in and started listening to some other veteran Podcasters, getting some equipment together, and asking questions. Interestingly I was approached by Mr. Ray Lott aka RSonic aka TMR (The Marine Rapper). I call him Ray. Ray wanted to brainstorm with me about different veteran initiatives and I have been wanted to reach out to him and do the same. One topic lead to another and I explained my new interest and desire to create a Podcast platform that would allow veterans to connect and communicate in way we never have before. Ray happens to be a creative genius and funny enough he was on his way to creating a Video-cast with much of the same goal. A Vid-cast  is essentially a Podcast but better because you can see those who are speaking and it’s easily accessible through You Tube. On a side note we also happen to share the same birthday which is awesome! (; Basically to sum it up… Myself and Ray have a lot in common besides inviting two celebrities via You Tube to join us at the Marine Corps Ball. We have come together to co-host a military and veteran themed Video-cast, unlike anyone has done before. It’s our goal to showcase veterans with a story and bring to light useful resources within our community. We have an amazing line up of guest and I stand by my statement that The GI Show is going to get better and better! You can watch and subscribe to The GI Show...

Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Marine Corps Birthday Ball

To all of my friends, family, supporters, and fellow Marines, Words can’t even describe the feelings I have after attending the Marine Corps Ball in Richmond this past weekend. I am so thankful to Justin Timberlake for accompanying me to the Ball and for his incredible post describing the events of the night https://www.facebook.com/notes/10150374155992098/ The experience he had is more than I could have ever hoped for, and I am truly humbled by the appreciation and respect that he has shown for the Marine Corps. The excitement for the Ball really set in once some of my best friends Charlsie Hoffman, Cody Tallent, Colton Smith, Megan Boyle (a.k.a. my Manager), Taylor Hood (my awesome hairstylist), Tyler Hood, and I started getting ready in the hotel. Just as thousands of other Marine Corps members, spouses, families, and friends do across the country every year to celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday, we put on our dress blues, tuxes, and gowns for the night ahead. After a few hours of prepping I said goodbye to the crew and nervously headed out of the hotel to meet Justin. Right off the bat I was greeted with a huge smile. Any uneasiness I had immediately went away as I realized what humble, good people Justin and those surrounding him are. Justin and I got a chance to talk about my Marine Corps experience, MMA career, and plans for the future as I get out of the Marine Corps at the end of the month. When Justin and I arrived at the Convention Center, we spent some time at a cocktail reception before heading into the ballroom. As the first ones in there we were able to sit and talk; and once the crowd began streaming in several people came up to meet J.T. and I, shake hands, and take some pictures – and he did it all without hesitation and with a huge smile on his face. At the same time, I couldn’t wait for my close friends to get there, and as I assured him several times, Table 10 would have it goin’ on! Once everyone was in the ballroom, the official ceremonies began. Within moments the room became silent as we watched  images and heard stories of Marines in World War II and September 11th during the Marine Corps Birthday Message. A presence, a tradition, and a sense community came over the room that set the tone for the night. I can’t even begin to express the emotions this footage aroused in every person in attendance, but I’m so thankful and blessed that I was able to share this experience with people so...
