Matthew Hauser has been in the U.S. Air Force for 5 years, working as an intelligence analyst and was just promoted to Staff Sergeant. He has been deployed twice, once to Korea and once to Qatar. He was deployed when his son was just 2 months old and just missed his son’s first birthday. Matthew is currently stationed at MacDill Air Force Base in Las Vegas, going through an advanced enlisted mission planning course.

Matthew chose Platoon 22 to receive the donation made by NFM Salute on his behalf. He and his family chose this charity because they believe something needs to be done to prevent suicide in the military.
