Home for the Holidays

It looks like Matt will make it home for the holidays. And it looks like Mom and Dad's house will be accessible thanks to a number of donations and some hard work. A huge thank you goes to Pat Kerr, State Veterans Ombudsman and Director of Operation Outreach Missouri Veterans Commission, Roberts Foundation and Flatwork, Keith Wells, Hermes Landscaping, Steve Danyluk of the Independence Fund, and more. We also want to thank the Mercy Medical Airlift/Angel Flight organization for providing air travel to Mom and Dad in order for them to go get Matt and bring him home. Hopefully, soon, there will be lots of pictures to share!

Merry Christmas Matt! I am going to light a candle for you at church...and keep you in my daily prayers.
I want you to know how thankful I am for you. I do understand yours and your family's incredible sacrifice, as my Dad was a Marine for 35 years and a hero like you are.
You are a BRAVEHEART! May the Lord hold you tightly in His arms and comfort you and heal your pain.
God Bless wonderful you and your dear, dear family...
