Some News from One of Matt's Fellow Soldiers

Terry Clees was injured in the same explosion in which Matt was injured. I believe he was the driver of the Humvee. This infomation has come from Terry's step-mother, Catherine Clees. She requests that we continue to pray for Terry's recovery.

Terry suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, extensive injuries to his right arm, and various shrapnel wounds. He is currently in the Polytrauma Unit at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis MN. He has PT, OT, RT and speech therapy daily. He continues to make small improvements, and can walk with a walker and some assistance in physical therapy. Updates regarding his condition can be found on his MySpace at

Giving Back Just a Little

On October 5, Matt's family was able to give back just a little to the Holy Trinity community by selling Matt's famous tee shirts at the annual benefit auction and donating the proceeds to the school. Thanks, Pat Murrow for the wonderful idea! Thank you, CENTER SPORTS in Lenexa, for providing the shirts.
