We are remembering and honoring Sergeant Sean Webster. Born in Charlottesville, Virginia on Nov 10, 1984. Sean joined our Corps in 2003 and served until he ultimately lost his battle with PTSD in 2008. Sgt. Webster endured two different tours in Iraq, one in 2004 and another in 2005. Both tours awarding him a total of two purple hearts, a Navy and Marine Corps achievement medal with a “V” for combat valor and a Combat Action Ribbon. Needless to say Sean was the ideal Marine, sacrificing more than most and showing courage and valor through his time overseas.
After returning from his second tour Sean was placed in the Wounded Warriors BN in order to help recover from the injuries he sustained. Sean loved working out and even after being told not to run and to take it easy he would find himself out on the pavement. His good friend James mentioned how great of a runner he was even after his injuries. Nothing would slow him down. Sean was funny, charismatic, and had that indescribable quality about him that people could not resist. Even his Gunny loved Sean and knew this quality well. His sister Jessica described him as “handsome with a personality that everyone loved”.
Sean was loved by many, his family, nephews and nieces especially, and Marines alike. He was was the kind of guy that could show up in a new city and have friend in 12 hours, that was just his personality. Sean’s sister, after fondly mentioning her little brother as “a pain in” her “arse” remembers Sean most as an uncle. Although being a Marine meant that he could not see them often they loved their uncle Sean unconditionally.
We are honoring a remembering Sean for the man and Marine that he was, and in his friends and families eyes, will always be. Even up until the very end Sean was training the junior Marines around him looking to impart his knowledge and experience before they deployed. He was funny, kind hearted, loved and one hell of a Marine.
