— Flags lined Traverse City’s streets as a grieving community said goodbye and thank you to one of their own. U. S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Matthew S. Schwartz died Jan. 5 in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device, or IED, struck his vehicle. Hundreds of his friends and family gathered on Saturday to pay respects.
