Please Remember SSG Matthew Weikert

Please remember SSG Matthew Weikert, 29-years-old, who was killed on July 17th, 2010, by an improvised explosive device in the Paktika province of Afghanistan.

Matthew had already served 4 tours in Iraq and had been recently deployed to Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division. Enlisted first with the Marines and later the Army, he'd been awarded the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign medal, the Iraqi Campaign Medal, the NATO medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

Never Forget!
