Wisconsin and Berry Lake Hero

From Fox 11 Green Bay
Matt Hermanson, a true hero. 

Seems Matt and his family vacationed on Berry Lake. They even rented our then cottage later to be our home. It doesn't say that in the article but our old neighbor and GREAT friend Kim reminded that to us this past weekend.

APPLETON (AP) - The family of an Appleton soldier killed last week in Afghanistan says he was an outdoorsman who kept everyone laughing with his great sense of humor.

Army Sgt. Matthew D. Hermanson's family released a statement Tuesday. They say the 22-year-old had 'a vibrant personality, exuberant smile and quick-witted humor.'

Hermanson was fond of deer-hunting trips with his father, brothers and friends to their land in northern Wisconsin, his family says. And they say he loved serving his country and had 'great loyalty' for his fellow servicemen."

From his families statement.

Matt loved vacationing on Berry Lake with his family and friends Matt W., Brandon, Dustin, Ian and Andy. His antics, tricks and hours of endurance on water skis, knee boarding or tubing with his friends, made for great conversation and laughs in the cabin and around the campfire. Rachel was Matt's one true love and he loved her with all his heart.
