Ally & Andy American Warrior: Matthew Jobkar, National Guard

Ally & Andy’s American warrior this week is Matthew Jobkar.

Matthew joined the national guard in 2007. After inspired by the terror attacks on 9/11.

Matthew says the first thing that he did in the army was President Obama’s inauguration. He was 1 of 200 soldiers picked.

Matthew talked about his deployment to Afghanistan, in November of 2009.

Matthew was asked one thing that stood out to him that he could not forget about his tour and he said “An older villager walked up to us and gave the young guys all a hug.” And that made him realize it be worth it in the end.

Matthew told us how hard it is to adjust to coming home, about hearing the birth of is son over the phone and realized how much he had waiting for him at home.
