Our youngest son, Army SGT Zachary M. Fisher, came to my wife, Sue Jacobs, and I, in late 2004, after graduating from Marquette High School, in Chesterfield, Mo., earlier that year, and struggling with his life's direction. Zack told us that he had enlisted in the Army Reserve. We were both upset, due to knowing the possibilities the Reserves brought with it, but we basically gave him our blessing. In early, 2005, Zack did boot camp at Fort Knox, Ky., followed by AIT at Fort Eustis, Va. After AIT, Zack returned home to Ballwin, Mo., and continued to be unfocused, in his life's direction. Once again, Zack came to his mother and me, in late 2005, and told us that he wanted to go active duty. Being concerned with the world situation, and what military life could bring, we asked him for two adult reasons why he would choose to put himself in harm's way. He told us that he needed the discipline of the Army, and he wanted to be part of something greater than himself. We told him that he had the support of his family. In early 2006, Zack trained at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., as a heavy equipment operator, followed by jump school, at Fort Benning, Ga. Following jump school, Zack received orders to report to Fort Bragg, N.C. Shortly after reporting to Fort Bragg, Zack's unit received deployment orders to Iraq. The unit was deployed from February 2007 to November 2007. Following the Iraq deployment, Zack returned to Fort Bragg for day to day Army operations. Zack did very well in his role in the Army, quickly advancing to the rank of sergeant. In late 2009, Zack received deployment orders to Afghanistan. He was in the midst of his deployment, when his grandfather passed away, in May 2010. The Red Cross was contacted to let Zack know the situation, and to try to get him home for the funeral. He was in a hot spot, at that time, and could not be evacuated in time. He did, however, make it home approximately a week after the funeral. While he was home, in a conversation, with my wife, she said I wish you didn't have to go back. He said, I have to go back, my guys are counting on me. Zack did return to Afghanistan, in the mid to later part of June 2010. On July 14, 2010, Zack's military vehicle was attacked by insurgents, with a command wired improvised explosive device, killing him, and three of his junior soldiers. There was one survivor from the attack, and, although he is now a triple amputee, he continues to progress, on a daily basis. Zack is very sorely missed, and will be forever loved, forever missed, forever our hero.
