PALMER – While the official definition of a veteran is someone who has served on active duty or spent time in the combat zone, in the end, being a veteran is a lifestyle more than a job, said American Legion Post 130 member Matthew Nay. Men and women who have served their country often continue to serve in their community, helping friends and neighbors build a better life.
Nay, a staff sergeant in the Army National Guard who served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and was discharged for medical reasons, has military service in his blood, tracing his roots back to an ancestor who served in the Revolutionary War. His mother Sally Nay is the commander of American Legion Post 130.
