From Kelly Smith 11/21/06:

Here is some info on Matt Webber, he was a 23 year old College Student at Western Michigan University, and a member Sigma Phi Epsilon, but not your typical frat boy. There wasnt anyone who disliked him. He was a hard worker, pulling down a successful job at Circuit City, full time class schedule and still volunteered and was active on campus in his down time. He was a great friend and the life of the party. Attached are some pictures of him enjoying life. He fought hard for his country and his life and that makes him a hero. Attached is a news story that may also help. I'm short on words because how exactly do you describe someone who was so amazing.

Thank you for taking your time to remember everyone, I was afraid his death would be just another number to people who heard the news, just like each of these soliders they all have a story worth telling and you are doing just that.
