A Greenbrier resident who has seen a lot of history is now officially a part of it thanks to a senator and the Congressional Record.
With about 20 guests present at the Greenbrier Senior Citizen Center on Saturday, U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., presented Chick Matthews with a statement from the Congressional Record outlining Matthews’ exploits in 100 years of living.
Matthews has served in four military branches and in four wars and he holds the distinction of being Greenbrier’s oldest resident. He has also visited more than 118 countries. Most recently he went on a tour of South America and will visit Poland this summer. Lincoln spoke to Congress in December on Matthews’ accomplishments.
Lincoln presented Matthews with a copy of the statement she made before Congress. Her rendering of his history will be on record for the next generation, which she considers significant.
