Mathew D. Garvey, GySgt. USMCR, Fireman NYFD, was killed as a result of the terrorist attack on the WTC in NY. Matt was serving as a NYFD fireman in a rescue squad at the time of the attack. Matt, along with an unknown number of his company were attempting to save as many lives as possible in the WTC shortly after the second hijacked airplane impacted.
During their rescue efforts, the building that they were in collapsed. Matt was listed as missing since 09-11-01. Matt served in ANGLICO from 1983 to 1988 as a FCT chief, SALT chief, JM, and platoon Sgt. in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Bde. platoons. He was one of the finest Marines that I ever served with. I ask that all hands in the ANGLICO family pray for Matt, his mother, and brother.
