Matt was in Golf Company 2nd Battalion Fifth Marine Division.
After being discharged from the Marines, Matt saw a need to help other veterans. Now back at home, Matt raises money for the Semper Fi Fund for wounded veterans by riding horseback across America from North Carolina to California. You can follow his journey on Facebook page, 'The Long Trail Home.'
His friend Nathan nominated Matt and wanted to say thanks for serving in the Marines and continuing to serve others in civilian life.
Matt, we thank you for your service to our country.
