Raised by 20 people in 9 months
Our council is raising funds to dedicate a refurbished building at Naval Weapons Station Earle to the memory of US Navy SEAL Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Kantor, killed in action in Afghanistan.

The money raised will be used as follows:

1. Building signage to Mathew Kantor
2. A bronze plaque citing the passage below
3. A wooden sign to be placed at NWS Earle
4. Funding for a mural depicting Mathews life
5. To support the ceremony to be held in his honor

 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.”

Matt, 22, posthumously received the Bronze Star with Valor.
