About Matt

My name is Matt Hermsen, I served 6 years in the Iowa Army National guard as a Signal Support Specialist (25U). I deployed to Afghanistan in 2010-2011 for OEF.
I left that Army National Guard at the end of 2013 to return to my civilian lifestyle and spend time with my family.
I still live in Iowa with my amazing family (Wife - Jen, Son - Camden & Paxto and Daughter - McKinley). I work full time as an IT Manager for a local company that I have been working with for about 6 years. I also own a few side businesses (Table/Chair/Tent Rental, IT Services/Sales, and Mini Storage units).
My passions are playing/watching sports with my family, camping, woodworking, DIY.
