"I served with Matt in Camp Hansen, Okinawa. We were just kids then, in 2001. Pre and post 9/11. I remember when Matt used to say that the Marine Corps should include fighting prowess in their promotion process. Matt said that If he could whoop a Sergeant's behind in a scrap, then he should outrank the guy. That discussion makes me laugh inside once in a while, even years later. Matt was a great Marine. Great warrior spirit."
Nick Quevedo of Hudson Valley, NY

"Hey Matt, it's getting a little rough not having you around, but hey when is high school ever a good time. As the time passes the memory of what you have done for us has never faded from the hearts of the family and the town, hope has brought where there is light after a long, dark time for the nation, your family and your hometown. Although we never really had the time to be together, you are near and dear to my heart."
Your Godson, Brandon of Nutley, NJ

"Hi, Matt. It's almost 9 years since you went home to God. We never met, but you lived around the corner here in LF. My son, who had just enlisted in the Marine Corps, attended your funeral. We sent a card & flowers to your family. We talked about you a lot until he left for Parris Island. A year later, he was in Al Anbar. Since you were first wounded, I prayed for you and your family. I still do. I see your picture in the Post Office here, named in your honor & I honor it. I thank God my son came home. I thank you for your service & your heroism. I still pray for your family who was so devastated. Today, I found out we may have been related. If you were one of the "angels" who watched over my son, thank you from this very grateful Marine Mom. God bless all who serve & may you RIP, young warrior."
Helen Heubel Vopasek of LF, NJ

"I did not know you and I'm certain that's my loss. But I wanted to thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice you made for God and Country. Thank you for my freedom. To the family, my heart and prayers go out to each of you. Most parents never hear this so I am going to say it. Thank you for instilling a sense of courage, bravery, and selflessness to your precious son. He is certainly a Hero,and it takes special people to make heros. May god be with you and keep you Always til you meet again. God bless."
Deputy (ret) April J. Castle of kingsport,TN. USA

"Miss you everyday brother. RIP."
LCpl Salvage of Mass

"Sgt Fenton
Happy Birthday day brother, and a Happy Veteran's Day. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about our conversations we had out in Iraq. You are the example for all us Marines to emulate. You did your duty with pride and honor. You are what America stands for. Until we meet again, continue looking over our brothers in arms. Semper Fi!

SSgt Munoz"
SSgt Munoz of Shirley. New York

"Dear Matt,
I hope you were toasting with my son Christopher as I shared toasting you all with your mom and friends this weekend. We miss you guys every day and do the best we can till we meet you in our own time. Hopefully she had at least half as much fun as I did in our short visit together. Please watch over all those who helped make the Weekend Remembrance possible for we hope to do it many more times. Just as it took two to create you, I hope your dad gets the message to share with your mom the monetary benefit he got on your behalf regardless of their own current differences so that your mom can be more free to enjoy her life until we all meet with you. As there are laws and there is justice, emotions like anger, greed and revenge do not fit in with what is right and just. Watch over our buddies still fighting and help bring them home safe."

"Matt, just wanted to let you know that we all miss you. You are in our thoughts everyday. I saw you picture in the front page of the paper today. We thank you for your great service and I just wish things were different. This drink is for you bro."
Rob Gambino of LF, NJ

"Matty Fent. It's been 4 long years, man. Everyday I think back through the memories we had. Good or bad, they each bring a smile, until that one. I spent most of the day staring out my office, thinking back. Crazy is the only word that describes it. I check in, not as much as I should. It beats me up, b/c I am sure you would be there more. The worst part of it all is not that I lost my brother of 17 years, it's that my kids never knew him. I will be tipping a shot of Jameson tonight in honor."
Neuch of LFRP

"Hey Cousin,

We all miss you deeply. Every time I hear about Marines or of all the military or even see one i think of you. You have shown me that dreams can come true and you've shown me that i can be a Marine to. Miss You
OORAH!"
Collin of NJ

"Hey Marine, I met your mother the other day and of course when I heard there was mothers of two marines from NJ killed in the war at the event I was at I had to pay my respects.. I am a fellow Marine and the same age as you were when you died for our freedom.. I did not want to ask the story of how you served so I looked it up online.. You are a true deffinition of a hero! I will remember you and Michael Schwarz everyday that I am in Afghanistan!! Semper Fi!!"
Lcpl Sandwith of Jersey City, NJ

"Hey Brother,
Today will be 3 years man, how time has flown by. I still have memories of you and the times we had at Cherry Point and then when I showed with 1/25 I was relieved to see that there was someone there that I knew. Man what a great guy you were and I will see you there someday. Take care man, and I will see you some time in the future."
2ndLt (formerly HM2(FMF)) McIntosh of Camp Lejeune, NC

Love ya bro"

"Hi Matthew,
I just happened to come across yet another site for you so I thought I'd write something on it. I read all of the other messages left for you. Even though it brings tears to my eyes it makes me feel good that so many people are thinking of you......I'm sure you never doubted that they would ; ) It's been over two years since I was able to give you your last hug. People think it get's easier with time but it doesn't. I didn't think it would be possible but I miss you more and more as time goes by. There are so many things I wish I could tell you and things that I wish you were here to see. Taylor started college yesterday....can you believe that. Brandon is in 5th grade and he's getting so big....very tall like Josh and Jen. Please watch over everyone (which I'm sure you're already doing). I guess you know your Dad took off to Ireland so take care of Courtney....I'm the only one she has here and you know that might not be such a good thing...you knew how I'd be if something happened to you. The heartache I have for you is the worst pain imaginable but I'm trying to do my best for Court. I love and miss you every second of every day and I look forward to the day I can see you again and finally give you a hug. Come visit if you can or send us a sign.
Love,
Mamma"

"My dear Matt,
I miss you terribly... You know we hhave been in a dark place so light us back OK 10 months and the pain is not any less .....kisses to you,,,,J"

"There are no words that can be said to the family of Sgt Fenton. I can't imagine what his parents and sister have had to go through. I couldn't imagine being a childhood friend of his. knowing him for so long nd then having him taken away. I only knew Matt for three or four years, and that pain has been hard enough. Matt was one of the bravest men i have ever known, and he has left a hole in my heart and my soul.

"There are place's i'll rememebr all my life. while some have changed, some for better not forever, with friends and lovers i still can recall. while some are dead and some are living, in my life I've loved them all."

Love you buudy!"

"Sgt. Fenton you are so well liked and loved. You will always be one of my biggest heroes. I was Matt's replacement at Cherry Point Head Quarters when I came back from Iraq so he could go to MWSS 274. This was such a tragedy for me and the other supply folks from our old office. He had so many questions about Iraq when I checked in never thinking in a million years this would happen. He was a awesome Marine and an awesome humanbeing. Rest in peace my fellow Marine. I know I will see you again on the other side. To his mom and dad who I meet at the hospital, "I have never been so proud to know someone (your son)""

"There are few things pure in this world anymore,
and home is one of the few.
We'd have a drink outside,
maybe run and hide if we saw a couple men in blue.
To me it's so damn easy to see
that true people are the people at home.
Well, I've been away but now I'm back today,
and there aint a place I'd rather go.
I feel home,
when I see the faces that remember my own.
I feel home,
when I'm chillin outside with the people I know.
I feel home,
and that's just what I feel.
Home to me is reality,
and all I need is something real.

Feelin alright, headin out tonight,
maybe out to a dark driveway.
I say now some feel bored,
and some are lookin for more.
Well, we all just decide to stay.
We got nothin to do,
and I look at you
I see something that I know and love.
and with the crack of a smile we all stay a while
we know from home there aint nothing above.

Well in the end we can all call a friend
well that's something I know as true.
And then a thousand years and a thousand tears
I confide in my original crew

cuz to me throughout eternity
there's somewhere where you're welcome to go
I said it's something free that means a lot to me
when I'm with my friends I feel home.

I feel home,
when I see the faces that remember my own
I feel home,
when I'm chillin outside with the people I know.
I feel home,
and that's just what I feel.
Home to me is reality,
and all I need something real
Home to me is reality,
and all I need something real

I feel home.


your finally home matty! i love and miss you lots. watch over us and ill see you soon enough!"
courtney fenton of little ferry

"Dear Matty,

"Matty,
lake george was not the same without you,to many memories of you most of them painful.... The kids did a shout out to you at Neptunes and quite a few shots....LOL ..... Your candle burned all weekend with Bobs and Mrs B. We are hoping not to add any candles for a long time.... Always know that we love you and we will never let you out of our hearts....Watch Ant ok? Missing you

J"

"Freedom isn't free. It's paid for with the sacrifices of sons and daughters.

When you walk down the street and say whatever is on your mind without being taken away or beaten, remember that that right was bought with the deaths of a million patriots like Matthew.

The words patriot and hero have become misunderstood and minimalized these days.

Let us remember the patriots who come home, but more importantly the heros
who die far away, sometimes alone,
sometimes unknown and silent with their sacrifice never known.

Matthew was a hero.
I hope his family draws some comfort
that I am grateful."
