Cpl. Matthew Mueller was born and raised in Fort Morgan, Colorado. He has been in the Army for five years. In 2014, he was in a rollover accident ultimately breaking his neck and most of the bones on the right side of his face. Mueller is no longer able to see out of the right eye because his eye lid hangs down over his eye ball. His double vision makes it next to impossible to function.

Mueller is married and lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado. After the Army, he plans to go to school to be a nurse practitioner.
