Zach emailed today, he is at Forward Operating Base Shank. He turned in his weapon, and most of his other equipment that he won't carry with him. He is excited yet he was concerned that so many of the replacement troops from the 4th Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division have no combat experience. He said they all looked at him and the other team members with an almost reverence. Zach said it was weird but I told him that he should remember his first days.
I can almost breath normally, it is so close.
You are superman, I love you Zach!
