"I visited Arlington National Cemetery today and paid tribute to the fallen soldiers but especially to Zachary, whom I never met, but saw on a TV documentary being honored by his comrades in 2005. Since then, I have visited Zachary's grave site many times and have watched as his grave falls deeper in the lines of fallen soldiers. Thank you Zachary for your sacrifice. God Bless."

"Your actions and memory live on."
J. Degg of Round Rock, TX

"It's been a nearly five years, though I have been to Zach's grave several times, and will be attending yet again next Veteran's Day.

Zach was absolutely positively the best guy someone could be stuck in combat with. He always lightened up the situation at hand, no matter how deep the S**t was.

One time he sprayed me with an ABC dry Chemical fire extinguisher the night before elections in Mosul, Iraq. He will always be missed, and never be forgotten.

That is definately a memory she will hear when she is older. A true american hero that she can proudly call her cousin held her just 2 months before a tragic event happened. We all miss you Zach! I look up to you in so many ways. You have given me a reason to better myself because I do want to be like you. You are a great man! --- Anyone that wants to email me about any experience with Zach, please do. I would love to hear more about him. swobler@hotmail.com"

Honored to serve with Zach of Ft. Bragg

"TO the Wobler family,
Today has been two years past since the day of a great loss for all of us. I would have like to speak to you all once again, to confirm that Zach is still in our thoughts. I was in the vehicle that took him to the hospital that day as well. That day is like a vedeo clip burned into my memory. We may move on with our lives, but there will always be a little pain left inside. It may not have been thought that I was very close to Zach, as his 1SG while he was attached to my company, but he was one of my soldiers, one of my kids. One that I worried about, and prayed for every night. We did have personal conversations, and we shared a passion of music and playing guitar. So in a way, he was special. His parting was not only one of losing a friend, but also one of losing a family member. I had 21 casualties from my company that tour, and I worried about them all deeply every time, as I waited in the hospital each time for word of their status. For Zach, I even felt guilty for not having the right blood type to give him. Fortunately a few soldiers, the SergeantMajor, and some nurses were able to provide. The bottom line is that I think about him every day, and on this day I reflect hard on what happened. I will never forget, you can count on that."
1SG (Ret.) Jason Wheeler of Fayetteville, NC

"To the family of Zach
There is not a single day that goes by that i don't think about Zach. I was with Zach on the way to the hospital in Mosul. I remember getting asked by my 1SG to talk to Mr. Wobler on the phone in Iraq. He wanted to talk to someone that was with him on the way to the hospital. At the time I couldn't talk about it. But I want to say that he was strong and never gave up. He fought all the way until the end. I should of talked with you and not have had someone else do it for me. For that, I am sorry. I remember after the 1st deployment, when all of you came down to Fort Bragg and we all went out to the Outback Steakhouse. We all had a great time, especially just being back home in the presence of friends and family. You all made a great impression on me as being very supportive and caring for all of us. I thank you for all the support that you have given us. Zach is missed by everyone, and I know that he will always be on my heart. I am very sorry for your loss, and all my prayers go out to you. Again, thank you for everything you have done for us."
SGT Derek Anderson of Ft. Bragg, NC USA

"Today is September 11, 2006. And there is not a better day to remember our heros. So let me tell everyone what I know about Zack Wobler. I knew Zack through his brother Brandon. He was just a young kid last time I saw him, (Im guessing 12 or 13yrs. old) but the memories of dropping my brother off at his house to stay the night seem like yesterday. I learn of his tragady while watching the news. I could not believe what I was hearing. I thought it was a dream. Zack, you went from a boy to a man and from a man to a hero and for all that you have done for me, my children, and my friends I truley thank you! YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!! I PROMISE!

"Wobler,
Remember when Silber fell off the LMTV on the way north from Samawah. We all had that oh crap look on our faces but the grins and laughter came out afterward. I still remember dealing with you and Eby and all the others when we used to joke around out on patrol. I remember the day I got sent with you as the RTO for our NAI next to the IP Station and the power plant in sa'haa. I know I probably aggravated you but know this I was awed by a guy that did something that I could never finish, Ranger. I was also proud to serve with the guy who was Division Trooper of the Year. I had just transferred to the 82nd MP Company when you guys got shipped back to Iraq. That time to Mosul instead of our old stomping grounds in Al Doura. I cried when Hackett over in the 82nd PMO told me about what happened in Mosul. I talked to Prado before I left and he still feels bad about what happened. I gotta say SSG I miss the guy I went on so many damn missions and NAIs with. But I feel better having known you and I use the example you set to lead my own soldiers. Now as an NCO I know why you and Hottell were so hard on me. You made me a better soldier and an NCO. I'll never forget the day I was pinned with my 5. Hackett was the first to pound em into my collar. I know he was thinking of his lost friend. it was only a few weeks after you had passed and I know he himself was hurting. You guide me when I am lost. When i wonder what the heck I should do about my soldiers and I teach them like you did me how to move on and do whats right. You will never be forgotten bro and I only wish i could have been there, its my own fault I wasnt. I kick myself and deal with the guilt everyday of not having deployed with you guys the second time.As my time in the Infantry wound down and I reclassed I always wondered if i should stay Infantry. But after seeing so many of you guys go I couldnt deal with that grief. I went MP but look back and know that if I meet my end I will be happy to be under your wing and learning from the best NCO I ever knew.

Rosemary (Foust) Todd (Class of '71) of Atlanta, GA

"Dear Jeanette & Tony, As I read through the touching messages left in your son's memory I realize that your son was as special and caring as my own. My heart goes out to you and I thank you also for entering a message under my son's name "Sgt. Christopher Pusateri". All of our memories of our son's will be engraved in our hearts forever and we will never forget what they have accomplished and done for our freedom! As we are faced with the challenge of how to go on with our lives after such a loss, we will look at life with a different perspective, that life has never meant so much....There is no possible way to fill this emptiness we are feeling, I have tried not to let the darkness consume me for I know that our son's have chosen their path's. As a parent I cannot understand where they have found the strength to be such brave soldiers. I do believe that who they are is a reflection of us as parents and how we raised them. I am so proud of our son's and also proud that my son served with your son and I will be looking forward to seeing the picture of our boys together. I will try to catch you on an email to learn more about your son. I have your email address saved in my list, mine is BRWEST1965@yahoo.com. If there is anything I can do to help ease the pain, let me know! Concentrating on the good memories has helped me tremendously. Again, my heart goes out to you and your family. We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that our soldiers have made for their family & friends."

"Cousin Tony, and all of you grieving so sorely for Zachary; I commend you for the most courageous, loving,and impressive young man you have raised!I will always fondly recall the times I shared with Zach each summer as a child, and although I did not have the privilege to know him in most recent years, I still share in your sadness of the loss of our true hero!

There are no words to express the complete monstrosity that has accord in the moment upon recieving the news, your son was killed! However, I know all too well what it's like to griev so badly your body physically aches from the pain in your heart! I wish I could tell you it will get better, but the truth is it will only get worse!

We never get over it, but somehow we learn to live with it, only because we have no choice. I recall in happier times as a child when Zach's mom Jeanette was stung by a bee on her foot outside in the backyard, as she went screaming in pain inside the house, a young sparkly eyed, blonde haired boy with a smile to melt your soul followed curiously behind her. As Jeanette lay weeping with her foot in the air Zachary layed his head on her chest and asked if she would be alright, and as she assured him she was okay, Zach went down stairs to get some ice for her, the look on his face so proud to be there for his mother in her time of need; was so diligently sincere, as he reassured her all was okay now! The point I am trying to make is we are born with these kinds of humanity, and not everyone has it, but Zach did, and even as a young boy he knew how to be a hero. It was for him; an innate feeling to help those who suffer! Thank you for fighting for my freedom!

I am proud to say I am your cousin Zachary Wobler, and as much as I complained about my summer's spent in Ohio, (being the boston girl I am), I now know it was meant to be, and I am glad I had the privliage to know you, and play with you, and Love you as my cousin............................

"Wobler, our paths crossed on a few occasions, but I didn't have the honor of knowing you as well as many in 2nd battalion. Everyone knew who you were though. It was common knowledge to everyone in the battalion that you were a superb soldier, not just to those close, but all over. When I heard about your death it hurt me a lot to know that even the best are vulnerable. Thank you for what you gave. And to the family, I grieve for your loss.

"Thank you for all of the kind words and support of my son Zach. We are very proud of Zach and we miss him so much. During this deployment he was anxious to get home. He was concerned that military support for the Iraqi people was not shared by them. He was concerned that they weren't willing to step up and be willing to fight for their freedom. Peace is something that we should be willing to consider and try to work things out by diplomatic means. We should always remind our elected officials that war should be completely justified.Elected officials and appointees should never lead us into war without making sure that it is justified without doubt. It should also be imperative that those selected by elected officials be qualified to perform their duties to the USA. We have the finest military in the world.The military leaders are highly trained career professionals. It is an insult to them to have appointees that have never served in the military to make the decisions that cost lives. We must never lose sight of our war on terrorism and the possibility that it may be here in the USA that we may be attacked. The war in Iraq has become expensive and is distracting to our real war which should be on terrorism.When we have so many troops deployed in foreign nations we have to be cautious that we are not prepared here in the USA.My son lost his life fighting for our country and was very proud to represent the 82nd airborne in battle. It is probably true that the insurgents are coming from all over the world. Insurgents that hide during the day and sneak around with drive by shootings and planting bombs that kill innocent people. To you I say your are cowards and you can go to hell.Your belief that by blowing up innocent people along with yourself and getting a free trip to heaven is hard for most civilized people to believe. I pray that our soldiers have all of the protection and troop strength that they need to get the job done. We have experienced military that should be listened to and not some stubborn political appointee that seems to have an answer to everything.When things have threatened our freedom it was us the American people that always fought to preserve this. We can assist other nations to gain their freedom. But until the oppression they experience becomes so intense that they are willing to fight for their freedom without assistance, it will probably never last. Thank you to all of the support for Zach and to our family. God bless each and every one of you. Give your child a hug and tell them you love them everyday.Support them and encourage them to be the best that they can be.Tony Wobler Father of Zach"
tony wobler of leipsic ohio USA

"Zach was one of my best friends. It's hard to believe there are people out there who would deprive an individual, a mother, a father, a daughter, a friend, of someone so great in this world in the name of terror. Freedom is a wonderful thing. Being alone is not. I assure you the people responsible for this are alone in this world and their issues. Terror has just won another enemy.
