Posting on Instagram on June 28, Matteo shared a photo of himself in his uniform as he sported a rougher look. His caption reads, “Lessons, experiences, struggles, challenges, emotions. Difficult to explain. But what I can say is that it has been the best experience of my life.”
He continued, “Take and take.” “One day at a time.” And everything will be okay. God bless our soldiers and their families. Unity is the only solution to be a great nation, [let’s] do it.”
Apart from successfully finishing his Scout Ranger training, Matteo also shared on Instagram Stories that he graduated at the top of his class. He said, “Graduated top of my class. I did not expect that. But I’m very thankful to everyone that was part of this journey.”
In April 2019, Matteo announced that he joined the Philippine Army as a reservist for his love of the country. Earlier this year, in March 2019, Matteo joined the auxiliary group of the Philippine Coast Guard together with his friends Nico Bolzico and Erwan Heussaff.
