Army Reservist Joins ADC Staff
Billings, Mont., native Matt Borron joined the ADC staff this week and will bring his experience in the Army Reserve to help the association work on military family issues. Initially, Matt will help the association get ready for the ADC 2012 Winter Forum in Miami.
Matt comes to ADC from Billings where he headed up an office responsible for recruiting students from southeastern Montana for the Job Corps program. Previously, he managed the Veterans Upward Bound program at Montana State University. The program is designed to provide a six-month college preparatory curriculum for military veterans.
Matt has launched several initiatives to aid veterans. In 2010, he created a joint Volunteers of America/Veterans Upward Bound education and job skills-building program. Last year, he founded MyVetBook, an organization dedicated to supporting veterans, service providers and their supporters.
Matt has been a member of the 592nd Ordnance Company since 2001. He deployed in 2003 to Germany, but was reassigned to Fort Carson, Colo., when the Pentagon was unable to gain permission to use Turkey as a transit point to enter Iraq. During his time at Fort Carson, Matt trained soldiers preparing to deploy overseas how to handle ordnance. In 2011, he graduated from the DOD Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve emerging leader training program.
