I still remember having talks with you about discipline and new soldiers, pacing down the sidewalk behind the battery toward our cars well after the sun had set a little over a year ago. I can't find the words to describe the void left by hearing of your death. One of my brothers I lived, worked, slept, and served with for over 6 years. Everything I try to write just feels cheap in comparison to the effect you had on everyone around you. You are missed and loved, brother. Rest in peace.

Matt, we didn't know each other particularly well. We weren't best friends. But you were probably the most recognizable face around 1-7. You always had a smile and a joke and on an occasion or two tried to cheer me up when I was going through hell. All I can say is, the world is a little darker for not having you around anymore.

My deepest sympathies to you all in this tragic time, the death of a brave soldier.

My son was one of the six killed in his unit. You are blessed that you had more time with him following his selfless service to our country. God bless you in your time of grief.

Matt, It was Great to get to spend time with you again buddy. You have always been an honest and great friend, and I will always miss you bud!

Jody, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Matt was an incredible person and has always been considered family to the Donahues. Our deepest condolences.
Randy, Lynn and Marc Donahue
