Mathew is a Captain in the United States Army currently splitting his time working at the U.S. Embassy and studying Vietnamese at Truong Dai Hoc Bach Khoa. Previously, he was posted to Germany and Japan, served a combat tour to Iraq as well as multiple assignments in the United States. He recently published his debut book, Soldier and Spouse and Their Traveling House, and achieved “best seller” status in the United States.
“Soldier and Spouse and Their Traveling House puts a witty spin on the dynamic of newlywed husband and wife trekking across two continents during their first three years of marriage. Who heads this household? The thrill-seeking soldier? Or the sensible spouse? Come along with this twenty-something military couple on their off-duty weekends as they dash in and out of trouble from the Emerald Isle to cruising down the Nile and many places in between—Western Europe, the Baltic, North Africa, the Balkans, Eastern Europe, and the Mediterranean.”
