Thank you to Christopher Mehlenbacher for submitting Matthew Ravas to be featured in Secure America Now’s veteran recognition program: Home of the Free - Because of the Brave.
“Matthew is my nephew. He came from a volunteering, service-oriented, America-loving family. My dad served in the Army during Korea, I served in the Navy at the end of the Vietnam era, and my sister served in an Army Helicopter Squadron at the demilitarized zone between North & South Korea. Matthew was a medic in his unit, and he contracted cancer and died at a very young age. If it hadn’t been for his illness, Matthew had every intention of making a career out of his time in the Army. God bless you nephew, you are my hero, and I look forward to our eventual reunion.”
