Hornell Marine Loses Life In Afghanistan

This morning, our newscasts included the story of a Marine from my hometown of Hornell being killed in Afghanistan.  I did not know Zachary Smith, but graduated with and hung around in school with his Uncle Matt.  Zachary's dad Chris was a little older than me, but growing up I knew him pretty well too.  They lived just two streets away from me.  My two brothers and mom were, and are much closer to the Smith family and are hit hard by this loss, as is the whole town of Hornell.  Please take a few minutes to check out the fine stories that the Hornell Evening Tribune published in tribute to Zachary.   Do not miss clicking on the photo gallery.  From prom pictures to high school football pics, it truly tells the story of what my hometown is all about, and what growing up in the USA should be all about.   Thoughts and prayers to the Smith Family.
