After three months in Iraq, the vehicle Zach was traveling in was blown up by an improvised explosive device.  He was sent back to the states for several months to recover his injuries and then voluntarily redeployed to Iraq for the remainder of his tour.  “I went back thinking that maybe we were going to do some good.  But it continued, day in day, countless pointless missions… It was a lost cause, we went over, we participated in things we probably shouldn’t have participated in, we made choices we’ll have to live with forever and then we get on a plane and come back here and nothing is ever said about it…”
