USMC Scout Sniper Sgt Matthew T Abbate


Dec 12, 2009
I will never forget the mail our teams sent to each other in country, and reading "I love and miss you my brothers. -Matt" shortly before you were killed. Enjoy Valhalla, warrior. I love and miss you still.

Matt was a school trained Scout Sniper (USMC) and was recently approved to be awarded the Navy Cross for the actions of the Scout Sniper team he lead in country. You may read about it here:
The link won't work due to an auto-correct function that automatically capitalizes the "m" in Marine. So just copy that link, make the "m" lower case, and it will work.
RIP Sgt.
