A Small Town Mourns the Loss of One of It's Sons CPT Matthew Freeman USMC
I have always been proud to be an American, and proud of my 22 years of Service in the Army (yes all 22 of them from Viet Nam – Cold War – Gulf War), proud of my service with the American Legion, and of my Service as a Contractor in Iraq. Yesterday I can add unequivocally I am proud to be a citizen of Richmond Hill, Ga (not that I haven’t been proud before, it’s just moved up in my consciousness I guess). We are a small town in southeastern Georgia halfway between Savannah, and Ft Stewart.
A few days a go we lost one of our Sons, CPT Matthew Freeman, USMC, while serving in Afghanistan. He came home yesterday to Richmond Hill….
