Suite Sponsor in Memory of Chief Warrant Officer 3 Matthew P Ruffner 11-18-1978 – 4-09-2013

Matt was killed in action, April 9, 2013, while serving our country in the Pachir Wa Agam district, Afghanistan, when his AH-64 Apache helicopter crashed. Also killed was Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jarett M. Yoder, 26, of Mohnton, PA. Matt was awarded the bronze star (posthumously) for his actions of saving a ground unit that had come under fire and was awarded the Aviation Mission Survivability Officer Award for 2013 by the AAAA for his life saving mission planning. Matthew served a total of 16 years, the last 7 as an Apache Pilot and also as an instructor pilot at the 1st Bn., 104th Avn. Regt., 28th CAB. He excelled at sports, was a talented guitarist, and was a graduate of Indiana University Pennsylvania with a BA in Criminology. All gave some, some gave all.

I love this Ruffner family, and every day is Memorial Day for them, and all Gold star families like them. Always remember their sacrifice and comfort those families every day
