Alumni cheerleader Matthew “Zack” Vauter graduated from Ohio State in 1999. After 20 years of successful service, Matthew will retire from the United States Navy on September 24th, 2019. Here is what Gustavo Medina, a Navy Master Chief, from Commander, U.S. Third Fleets said about him:
“Unlike other active-duty members, he has elected not to have a retirement ceremony to commemorate his services and unselfish loyalty to this great country. Believe me, there is no award or medal that we can give him to capture the life-changing impact he has had on the Navy or the gratitude for a lifetime of service.”
Ohio State sent him a framed uniform and letter from the Dean thanking him for his service. Congratulations Matt!
