Matt Loebs is a living testament to the life-changing work of Home Base Veteran and Family Care, an initiative co-founded by the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital. Supported by crucial contributions from the Patriot Fund and other partners, Home Base has been able to deliver lifesaving care to Matt and hundreds of other Veterans and Military Families.
After retiring from the U.S. Army, where he specialized as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological Explosive Specialist and Combat Engineer, Matt faced invisible scars from multiple deployments in Iraq. The emotional and psychological toll affected not just him, but also his family and mental well-being.
It was Home Base Florida’s programs, enabled by generous support, that marked a watershed moment in Matt’s life. Through targeted intervention at the Home Base Intensive Clinical Program, he took the first pivotal steps toward reclaiming his sense of self and well-being.
As Matt transitioned from active duty to civilian life, he transformed his adversities into meaningful opportunities. Today, he’s a successful business owner and founder of the non-profit organization, Veteran MWR. His journey serves as an enduring symbol of resilience and transformation, showing the critical role that Home Base and its supporters play in altering the lives of Veterans and their families.
In realizing his full potential and making a meaningful societal contribution through Veteran MWR, Matt epitomizes the profound, positive impact a healed veteran can have on a community. This wouldn’t be possible without the essential support from The Patriot Fund and others. His story is a vivid reminder that when provided the resources to heal from the invisible wounds of war, veterans become not just survivors, but catalysts for change.
