To Support the Family of Matt Maupin

I manage a military surplus store in Northern Kentucky just 15 miles from where Matt Maupin's parent's live. I met his parents at the Yellow Ribbon Support Center in Batavia, Ohio and was touched by their spirit and willingness to not forget their son. Since his capture is so close to home and we have ongoing activities around the area to help to lead him home, I felt compelled to purchase the bracelet in support of Matt and his family.

I also got my bracelet to support Matt and his parents. I have never met them, but they have my full support in the hopes of bringing Matt home.

May God be with all our service men and women always.

God Bless this young man who is now in heaven, and his family who is left behind to deal with the tremendous loss. Whenever your child dies, it is a tragedy to the family. When it is caused by WAR, it is even harder to comprehend. Rest in peace, soldier.
My son is also in the armed forces right now. I am so proud of him and all of the young men and women willing to sacrifice all for their country. God Bless them all!
