ARMY cpl. zac gore
Zachariah Gore was born and raised in Lisbon, Ct. where he always had a love for the arts - drawing, painting, tattooing, and anything he could do with his hands. Art was his passion.
In 2010 he joined the service as an infantryman in the Army so he could have a stable life for him and his then wife - hoping he could pursue a career in law enforcement once his contract was up. Zac was stationed in El Paso and was a part of the 1st Armored Division. He would spend the next 2.5 years training for his deployment to Afghanistan.
December 28, 2012, he would deploy. After 3.5 short months deployed Zac, unfortunately, would step on an I.E.D. (April 5, 2013) while on a dismounted patrol resulting in a right leg salvage as well at the loss of his dominant left arm and left leg.
As an extremely humble guy, Zac would just tell you he did nothing special and he was just taking a walk. But to his friends and family, he is more than that. He is a strong willed, supportive, caring, loving, inspirational person.
