RIP HMCS

We lost a cornerstone of the SARC community, and especially 2nd Recon Bn / 2nd Force Recon Co. Retired HMCS(DV/FPJ/FMF) Matt Stevenson died of natural causes this WED 2 AUG. Family sources report that he was training in CO Springs and suffered a fatal cardiac event.

Matt had an inspirational spirit, a constant smile, and a very broad skill set - his ruck cannot be hoisted by many. He mentored the next generation of Recon/Raider SARCs and gave 100% for his USN/USMC teammates. I wouldn't exactly call this completely tragic; he was having a GREAT retirement and doing what he wanted. I just wish he'd be around for another couple decades or so. RIP, Brother, Fair Winds and Following Seas.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
