HM3 Mathew Petersen, USN

In a town nearby, local residents who are serving in the military get special recognition in the Hometown Heroes program. Beautiful banners with the service person’s photo, name and rank are attached to lampposts along the main boulevard. My nephew, Matt, is one of those being honored.
