Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Kantor, 22, raised in Gillette NJ, died in Afghanistan, bravely serving our country, on November 1, 2012.
“While on patrol, several insurgents mounted a complex machine gun attack on Matt and his team,” it read in part. “Without fear or hesitation, Matt moved to protect his teammates and was mortally wounded by the heavy machine gun fire.
“He was the first line of defense for his team and his actions were directly responsible for saving the lives of his element and protecting the main body of the patrol,” the letter continued. “Matt was true to form in his last moments, a gallant and noble warrior who put his team above himself.”
