Matthew left to head on to Kentucky this evening after spending a whole week with his Momma! I have held off on saying anything; because he doesn't like praise on anything related to the Army, BUT, MY SON, MR. MATTHEW, has passed all tests required to be promoted to a sergeant. He should be pinned sometime in early June.
I am thinking he will be sent back to Iraq shortly after. Signed Sgt. Matthews' proud Momma! Connie Leigh
Tell Matthew CONGRATS on the promotion! We've all had him in our thoughts and prayers since we first heard he was heading off to war a while ago, and we will continue that until we hear he's home and OK for good Have a GREAT night, Ms. Matthew's Momma! -Ben Hughes

I know this a proud moment for you. Our son was promoted last year and his dad got to pin the medal on him. We were so proud of his accomplishments.
