Memorial & KIA Mission for Zack Shannon - Dunedin, FL Comments

Memorial & KIA Mission

Zack Shannon, 21

U.S. Army

Tampa – Dunedin- Palm Harbor, FL

Sunday–Monday 24, 25 Mar 2013

 

The Patriot Guard Riders has been invited by the family of Zack Shannonto stand in silent respect for this hero.

 

Zack Shannon had several passions in his short life: Fishing, sports, and the military, where his dad and three older brothers served. Following in their footsteps, Shannon joined the Army in 2010 after graduating from Dunedin High School. He became a helicopter mechanic and deployed to Afghanistan in December, his first trip to the warzone.

 

According to his family, "He loved helicopters, "All he wanted to do was fly."

The family kept in touch, Skypeing when they could, they would send care packages, full of candy and Play-Doh, to the Kandahar Air Base where he was stationed.

The service will take place before Shannon's body returns from Dover, because one of his brothers is in the Navy and has to return to his base in Seattle, Wash., on Monday or Tuesday.

Zachary has a brother in the Army National Guard and a third brother in the Army. Zack Shannon's body is expected to return via MacDill AFB on Monday, March 25.

Please bring your 3'x5' American Flag and Stand for this True American Hero.
