Abstract Matthew Wycoff (b. 1979) graduated from Hillcrest High School in Salt Lake City. He enlisted in the Marine Corps as a private first class under the PLDC reserve officer program. He went to boot camp in October 1999. While in the reserves, Matthew took two years off to serve an LDS mission in Brazil before returning to reserve status in the Marines. After September 11, 2001, Matthew's unit, Fox Company 2nd Battalion 23rd Marines was called to active duty in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Noble Eagle. They spent a year on active duty stationed on Camp Pendleton, CA. as a "Quick Reaction Force" (QRF). After one year in California, Matthew and his unit were reactivated for the Iraq War in 2003. They were attached to the 1st Marine Division, and participated in the invasion of Iraq and the fall of Baghdad in April, 2003. Matthew has since left the Marine Corps and has served as a security contractor in Afghanistan. Interviewed by John C. Worsencroft. 55 pages.
