For Matt: I watched your documentary on your experience in Afghanistan & Iraq and just wanted to tell you that you opened my eyes to a lot and thank you for your honesty. Now that you're back in the USA, go after all your dreams and goals in life with passion. you deserve to have the very best life has to offer. Good Luck!

Matt, I was profoundly moved by your story. I hope everyone in America watches this and profits from it as much as I did. What a wonderful young man you are. You deserve everything this country has to give for your sacrifice. My greatest desire is that you live a long, happy and fulfilled life.

For Matt: it really is refreshing to read of your experiences in fighting an unpopular war. Your sense of patriotism and loyalty are an inspiration to countless Americans who feel helpless about this conflict. Great to know that American still produces decent young men of integrity. May God bless you and give you the peace and success you deserve.

I have seen the full length video on MSNBC and I have been looking for it ever since on the computer. If anyone knows where I can find it please email me at bentzfball99@aol.com. I am also enlisting in the Marine Corps in June. I am 17 years old. I will join DEP(Delayed Entry Program) because I have to wait till I have graduated from High School. I want to become a sniper like Matt. God Bless him, his family, and all of America!!

What a crock of shit you are Chris. She cares nothing about nobody, she's just a loney old bitch & a queer on top of it.
