Inscription on Grave Marker:

Matthew Robert Smith
L CPL US Marine Corps
May 30, 1982 - May 10, 2003
Kuwait
Operation Iraqi Freedom

Assigned to Detachment 1, Communications Company, Headquarters and Service Battalion, 4th Force Service Support Group, Peru, Indiana. Smith died instantly when the Humvee he was driving as part of a convoy to Kuwait’s Camp Coyote crashed into a parked trailer. Matt stood about 5 feet 8 inches and weighed 140 pounds, but friends and family said he never let his small stature get in his way. He played one season of football in high school, served on the student council and worked at the school radio station. He attended Indiana University, joined the Marine Reserves as a radio operator and was deployed to Kuwait in February where he worked on supply convoys. The day his son died, David Smith received the first letter from Matthew since his deployment. Matt wrote how proud he was to be fighting for his country's freedom.
