Matt Thompson was a Green Beret and medic in the Army Special Forces. He was killed in action during a mission in Afghanistan on the morning of August 23rd.

Matt's wife, Rachel, his parents Mark and Lynda, and his sisters Karen and Robyn are traveling to be with family and to receive the body. Many generous people have asked if there is any way that they can help to support the Thompson family. During a difficult time like this, travel expenses should not be something the family needs to worry about. This page has been set up to offer a place for people to help offset the family's travel costs and other expenses that come about due to this loss. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will be submitted directly to Matt's family.

Anyone wishing to make memorial contributions instead can send them to:

Brookfield Lutheran Church
18500 W. Burleigh Rd.
Brookfield, WI 53045
(262) 783-4270
brookfieldlutheran.org

Prayers for peace and comfort would also be of great support as the family is faced with this sorrow. They are comforted by the promise of their Savior, Jesus Christ "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies" (John 11:25).
