One day closer! I received an email from Zach, he indicated his dates for redeployment and how excited he is to leave. On the other hand, he wants to go back to Carwhile, to do missions, because he said his brothers-in-arms in the Dog Co. of the 1st BN, 503rd Parachute Infantry are still out there. So is Attack Company, and Zach indicated if they are still out there conducting missions they need the Recon guys out there. Incredible, he is ready to go home to leave Afghanistan, and yet there are still troops in the field. We cannot understand the devotion to duty, honor and brotherhood that these brave people live by.
I know it is not what Lisa wants to hear, but Zach would make an incredible Army officer, he has a sense of commitment and love of country that is interspersed within him and being a caring incredibly driven person who is far wiser in common sense than his years would indicate. Zach you are my hero, you are superman and I love you!
