    Unhappy A Tradegy for a Young Soldier(Father is a member on here)

    Saturday morning this past weekend Mike Weiss and family lost a wonderful son due to violence at a party. Zac was a 19 y.o. US Military Academy (West Point) appointee. He went but wanted to continue his education and military goals, while closer to family. He returned home and just got his acceptance letter last week to University of Central OK and their Army ROTC Program. He was in the National Guard drill on Saturday Morning in Muskogee. He was trying to leave the party that night, but the other kid kept harassing a girl. Zac was attempting to get the girl to leave..An altercation occurred and when he stepped in to protect the girl. He was shot. Mike's son was a good and decent person. He loved life and made it his personal goal to bring a smile to everyone. He was a true military man and loved being in uniform.

    Its just such a tradegy, He will be greatly missed. Heaven just gained a soldier......
    Zac's father Mike has been unemployed for several months and any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
    If anybody wants to help and donate to aid in the expenses of funeral for this young man, God Bless
