Matthew was nominated by his wife, Christina:
My husband joined the military back in 2011 after being together everyday for 5 years boot camp was the biggest struggle for us. After boot camp we got married then said goodbye for seven months. But our love grew stronger with the military. My husband is my hero because he would do anything for me. He is so dedicated to the Navy and with his hard work he landed a rate in the legal field.Now we are expecting our first child and he is going to be a great father. I am glad that he will be mine and my child’s hero forever.
