LINTHICUM, MD, November 1, 2019— NFM Lending is pleased to honor Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class Matthew “Random” Dunn as the NFM Salute for November 2019.

BM1 Dunn was a member of the U.S. Navy as a Navy Seal, serving from December 1996 to October 2006. He was part of SEAL Team 2 and SEAL Team 5 as a Sniper Instructor and a Basic Underwater Demolitions Instructor (BUDs). He joined the Southern California chapter of the Knuckle Draggerz Veterans Club in May 2013 and was elected Chapter President shortly after. On August 18th, 2013, BM1 Dunn was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident at just 39 years old.

BM1 Dunn was nominated by his club brother, Mitch Akers.

“Random was so humbled and cared about everybody. He lived his life to the fullest. He was a great asset and brother of the club. He will be sorely missed.”

NFM Salute is an initiative in which one military member or Veteran is chosen each month to be honored as the “Salute of the Month.” Salutes are chosen from nominations on the NFM Salute website, The “Salute of the Month” will be featured on the website with a biography and information about his or her service, and NFM Lending will make a $1,000 donation to a military or Veteran non-profit in the Salute’s name.

Selected NFM Salutes may choose from one of the following three non-profits: Platoon 22, Any Soldier, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. Akers chose Platoon 22 to receive this month’s donation in BM1 Dunn’s honor. NFM looks forward to the opportunity to continue to honor military and Veterans through the NFM Salute initiative.
