I knew Sgt. Bair from Hawaii. He was a great guy. Always making everyone laugh. I'll never forget when the guys deployed and how he always made sure to keep the guys spirits up. He will never be forgotten.

Patti, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. No words can express how we feel, I remember seeing the picture in the paper and it was that same face I remember from years ago in the neighborhood when the kids were little. Matthew may you rest in peace and thank you for your service.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to SSG Matthew E. Bair our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Matthew. And to Matthew it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for his service in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedoms and for the selfless sacrifices he made for his country while serving with the U.S. Army. No greater love and patriotism is shown than a man dedicate his life in service to his country. Matthew, you are a brave Army Warrior and a true Patriot. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Matthew's family and loved ones.

Stephen J. Lavery, Commander, American Legion Post 14

Matthew, I wish Mohammed and I had gotten the chance to meet you, my sister spoke nothing but kind words about you and through the glow that would charm her face whenever she mentioned you I knew you were a wonderful man. I hadn't seen my sister this happy in such a long time, and I would like to thank you for giving her that amazing happiness. I am terribly saddened that you left this world so suddenly, I know in my heart you made this world a better place. Thank you for your dedicated service to our country, and for being such a blessing to my sister and nephew. May your soul forever rest in peace, I hope to meet you up in heaven someday...
Love, Brandi

You touched our lives for just a short time. We painfully desire reality to be other than that consuming us right now. Impossible for us to understand this sad emptiness our daughter and her son are having to endure now. Our only peace comes from knowing you are home with God. Rest in His embrace.
