Thank a Vet with Lunch!

This week we thank Mat Parr for his 11 year service to the United States Army, Airborne Ranger and Green Beret, as a Senior Medic on 5th Special Forces “A” Team. His credentials include; Weapons trainer at the US Army Battle Skills Course, JRTC Joint Readiness Training Center, Hand to Hand Combat Instructor and Pre-Ranger Instructor.

Matt is a Life Member of the US Army Ranger Association. He is an NRA certified Pistol Instructor and currently operates Pistol training programs for people who have Concealed Carry Permits called PSD&S “Personal Self Defense and Survival” (survival of the Legal aftermath).

Currently, Matt recruits and trains marketing teams for a company in the Direct Selling Space.

The 5thSpecial Forces Moto is;  “De Opresso Liber  (Latin)  Meaning “To Free The Opressed”

Matt says; This motto has stayed with me in my civilian life, having a dynamic impact on me as a Soldier, Husband, Father, & Business Owner. Today I would say that my most important daily tasks are being a Husband and Father and my Charity work with the SFCT to help those families most affected by the Global War on Terror the Special Opps Families who have lost their Soldier in the war.

The majority of Americans assume that the families who have lost a loved one are taken care of by the Military.  I am here to tell you as a Disabled Veteran, that is a wrong assumption. We need to help those who have sacrificed the most for our rights as an American. We need to help the children left behind without a parent who was killed or significantly injured in the Military.

I view my daily contributions to supporting the spouses and children of my fallen brothers as my most important duty. I am passionate about my work, mainly because the need is so big and the people willing to help are so few. Assistance for these families can be in the form of volunteering, donations or through business affiliation. If anyone reading this is open to helping please call me immediately (708) 205-2975 or

As a past client and friend, we proudly thank Matt for his service and dedication to our country. If you are a current member of the military or have served, we would like to Thank a Vet With Lunch.
