There may not be as many postings in the next two weeks, but we will resume regular updates in a week or two. Matt has some exciting things to look forward to, and we will be delighted to share his progress with you all. Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement of Matt. You may continue to leave him messages during the next two weeks, and they will get to him! He has really enjoyed hearing from you all.
By the way, this website has been put together entirely by Matt's family and friends. He hasn't yet even seen it, so the comment "It's just a flesh wound." was a joke from Monty Python that I thought he would appreciate. It wasn't his own comment. He is receiving a printed copy of the messages you all are leaving for him in the postal mail. Eventually he will be able to get onto the site and you will hear from him directly.

Hey SGT good to see your doing..alright. Even though you were in delta company with me I didn't ever see you. I went on leave and came back and you were gone. Hope all is well.

Hey, Matt

Thinking about you today and hoping you are enjoying your visit with your little darlings this weekend. I'm sure they are lifting your spirits. Give them all hugs for me, too, and keep one for yourself.

Love, Annie :)

We keep updated by visiting the website daily. We continue to be amazed and inspired as we learn more about you and your great strength and determination. Enjoy every moment of your time with your kids this weekend. We know that they are an inspiration to you as you focus on your recovery. It is good to see the picture of your parents with you. Hi to Gary and Barb. Also, hi to Jessica who helped us out with our children before she had children of her own. We know what loving and caring people they are and what a great support they are to you now. The prayers for you will never stop.

This is our first time to visit this website and I have to say, it has been both hearting and hard. My husband and I had a very hard time looking at the picture of the humvee because our nephew, Terry Clees, was the one who was driving the humvee that day.
We just want to say to you and your family, first and foremost, that we are praying for all of you. Our prayers have been with all of you that were in the humvee that day, since we got the call about Terry. And not just you but your families, too. And we are so thankful that you are all alive.
We know in our hearts that God was looking out for you all that day. And that with prayer and the love of you families, you will be able to overcome whatever life throws at you.
And we agree with what David and Dinah Wooddell said, God does have a purpose for all of you and you will all do an amazing job of it when the time comes.
And we are proud to say that we live in a country that has such brave men and women who risk their own lives and safty to make sure that we can all sleep better at night. You and the other men (Terry and the others) in that humvee are and always will be our HEROS!
Our love and prayers,
Mike and Beckie Roach

Hi Matt,

The day before Independence Day has us all thinking about our freedoms, families, and happiness. We are so grateful to all of the men in our armed forces, and especially, our very own. May you all have a peaceful day tomorrow, and know that you continue to be in our hearts and prayers. Thank you so much.

Love,
Aunt Annie:) and Uncle Greg
