Earlier this Fall, the local chili cook-off took place. Matt’s mom works for CRMC [one of the local hospitals/medical complexes] and they always make a great booth and awesome chili. The theme this year was Local Heroes, and CRMC’s idea was to incorporate local heroes into their booth: nurses, police officers, fire fighters, military members. That’s where Matt came in. He dressed in his Marine dress blues and participated in CRMC’s booth.
