Kevin Dockery

Kevin Dockery, our Vice President of Technical Information, has been working with the written word most of his adult life, having written or contributed to 37 books, numerous magazine articles, and having appeared on The History Channel, Discovery Channel, and the Military Channel on a number of shows. The balance of his adult work has been with weapons, either as a custom gunsmith, or in the U.S. Military. Having served in Company A (The President’s Guard) of the Third Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) he maintained a very wide variety of modern and antique military weapons, including 77 Brown Bess flintlock muskets. The latter weapon resulted in him being the last armorer in the U.S. Army qualified to knap flints after training at the Smithsonian Institution and Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.

His further military career included time as a Designated Marksman in the President’s Guard, a Mechanized Infantryman, squad leader on an 81mm Mortar, and Platoon Sergeant in an Infantry Company. He spent time during the first Gulf War as a support contractor on the Fox chemical/biological/nuclear scout vehicle.

He has since become a noted military historian specializing in Naval Special Warfare (the SEAL Teams) and military ordnance. His hobbies include blacksmithing, knife and sword making, precision shooting, and cartridge collecting. His Weapons Technical Library can be considered world-class.
