Matthew “Axe” Axelson

If I can work [fighting terrorism] and get rid of some of the bad guys, I’ll be happy.

Matthew Axelson grew up in Cupertino, California where he would go on to graduate from CSU-Chico and meet his future wife, Cindy Oji Axelson. In late 2000 he joined the US Navy. He spent time in Hawaii training and after BUDs he and Cindy married.

In 2005, Matt deployed to Afghanistan as part of a four-man SEAL reconnaissance team tasked with tracking a high-ranking terrorist leader when they were ambushed by Taliban forces.

During Operation Red Wings, he was killed and posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for his actions.

Over the years, Matt’s family has been supported by many wonderful people. So in 2012, they founded the Matthew Axelson Foundation to give back to the community through sponsored golf tournaments.

As part of the golf tournament experience, a Special Forces Operator joins your foursome creating an unforgettable experience.

Funds raised go to supporting his brothers in arms after service and the children of heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice.
