My sister Monique and I wanted to salute our father MSG Miguel Matos for 33 years of service! We'd also like to give our mom Norma a salute as well! She held down the fort while our dad was away. She was always there for us and no matter how hard it was as a "single" mom, she always had a smile on her face and took pride as an "Army Wife". We are thankful for everything you have done dad, you have been a dedicated soldier and have always put your soldiers needs before your own! We are very proud of you and wish you the very best during your retirement! HOOOAHH!!!
Our pictures are from his retirement ceremony at Mac Dill AFB, Tampa, FL.
