Matt is a Pararescueman deployed to Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.
Saw him at the BX today, he probably thought I was crazy. But he is pretty awesome!

My son was serving in Afghanistan as a Kiowa warrior helicopter as this was being filmed last summer 2012. These guys were 50 meters from where he worked and they both used the same ramp for takeoff. My son provided cover for them many times, but said they acted like A__holes, and didn't seem to ever want his help, even though he was risking his own life to provide cover for them. Still a good show to watch.
Iwork in a Chicago ER that sees more penetrating trauma than any other ER inIllinois and I am not talking about John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of CookCounty there only second to us. Hands down this series is the best document Ihave seen in a long long time, no hype no BS right on the money and put’s me onthe edge of my seat as if I was back at work.
Keep it up Nat Geo this is kind of programing I pay to see.
I love your show. I was born in Israel and moved to the States when I was 8. As a kid I knew I wanted to be in the 669 Unit in the IDF. Sadly at the age of 17 I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and my dream was crushed. I respect and admire what you guys do. I also recently found out that my wife and I are pregnant, we're at Avocado right now and very excited. I totally agree with you it's time to buy another gun, but I think you should teach Natalie how to shoot and still be the scariest Dad when the boys start coming around. I think she'll be O.K. as she already has a big sister in Eric's daughter Zoe to show her the ropes. May G-D protect all of you and guide you "SO THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE".
P.S. Since I couldn't serve, please let me know of good charities for you guys and those you save that I can support.
Thank you and G-d Speed.
