KIXS 108 and Post Acute Medical join forces to recognize service men and women  who have served.  We thank them, we salute them, and we honor all who have fought for our freedom. This week we would like to recognize Matthew Jon Boyle. Thank you Mr. Boyle for your service.

Matthew Jon Boyle enlisted in the Navy from 1992 - 1995.  On December 3, 1992, by ship on opposite oceans, Matthew left aboard USS Mount Baker from Charleston, SC headed for Cuba and his brother Patrick Boyle (USMC) was leaving San Diego, CA heading to Asia, the opposite side of world. (South Sioux City Star paper featured their story) Matthew was stationed in Charleston, SC as a Boatswainmate. He traveled to Mediterranean, all over the Indian Ocean during the Persian Gulf War. During heavy seas (15-30 foot swells), Matthew was the one that drove the ship because he could keep on course better than anyone else, a skill set he would never have known had he not entered the Navy.

After serving the Navy, Matthew attended Southwest Texas State University where he received his bachelor's degree in Nutrition.  He was also the President of the Triathlon Team at the university which was featured in a National Triathlon Magazine for creating the first USAT Collegiate Championship Race. He then earned his Master's  in Nutrition at Sam Houston State University.

Matthew moved to Victoria in 2004 and accepted a Dietician position at Citizens Medical Center. It was at this hospital (AKA:  the heart hospital), that he would later meet his wife Hope.  Matthew and Hope were married in 2007 and together they have been raising their son, Joshua.  He is very passionate about many things, and family is definitely one of them.  He has served in so many capacities in his life and he never tires from it.  He's  an active member of his church and has served in many ministries.   (CCD Teacher, Extraordinary Ministry, Home bound Ministry, ACTS Retreat, ACTS Core Facilitator, Teens ACTS Retreat and Spiritual Liaison)

On June 1, 2015, Matthew accepted a position as Food Service Director at Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital of Victoria and Warm Springs Specialty Hospital of Victoria. As a former military, he initiated the recognition of veterans at both facilities and currently holds the title of Military Liaison/Ambassador, another passion that Matthew holds dear to his heart.

On behalf of Post Acute Medical, KIXS 108 would like to thank all our veterans who have served!
