Matt and I got close when we were both on restriction one time in the Marines. We were bunked together for at least a month 24/7. During that time I found out I was going to be a father and the first person to hug and congratulate me was Matt. He was so genuine and unique. He never was in a bad mood and always had a smile on his face that was contagious. I haven’t talked to him in a while but he was always happy to hear from me whenever I did pop up. Gonna miss you sir, I’m already shedding a tear. Oohrah! 21 gun salute!
