Surface 2nd Class (SEAL) Matthew G. Axelson, 29, of Cupertino, CA died on June 28, 2005 in Afghanistan, fighting beside Navy Seal and Medal of Honor Winner Lt Michael Murphy.

My love and deep appreciation goes out to his family.  My thoughts are with them today.

To learn more about what they endured that day, please visit the Official Website for Michael Murphy or read the book, “Lone Survivor” by Marcus Luttrell.

Our nation owes those service members and their families much more than we could ever repay them.
