Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class Matthew “Random” Dunn

Matthew Random Dunn

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.”

Akers chose Platoon 22 to receive this month’s donation in BM1 Dunn’s honor.
