Remember Sgt. Matt Maupin




Sgt. Matt Maupin

Sgt. Matt Maupin has been missing since April 9, 2004. On that date his convoy was attacked by insurgements near the Bagdad Airport. Three contractors were killed and a fellow soldier’s remains were found shortly afterwards.


Never Forget

On April 16, 2004 Al Jazeera showed a video tape from the insurgents showing Matt was a prisoner. On June 28, Al Jazeera received a video tape that was supposed to be the execution of Matt Maupin. But, intelligence sources cannot verfiy that fact.

Maupin was the first American soldier captured after the War was declared officially over. So he can’t be officially classified as MIA or a POW. Frankly that stinks. As far as I’m concerned he’s a POW!!

He has been promoted twice since his capture. But, that is a formality. It certainly doesn’t bring peace of mind or closure to Matt’s family.


Worlds Apart

April 9, 2005 was the one year anniversary of Matt’s capture. Both his family and friends are doing everything they can to make sure no one forgets Matt. The Military has sent someone to the family’s home to assist them. But, as far as finding Matt, nothing has led them to him.


POW/MIA

We must not forget Matt Maupin.We must remember him. We have promised our troops that this time all of them will be accounted for instaed of leaving some of our troops unaccounted for like after Vietnam!

  1. I learned about your son from my friend Holly. She gave me the link to this website and the other one with all the information on what happened to him. I am going to spread the word about him the best I can, and hopefully he will be found safe soon. He will find his way home soon. God bless you and your family.
