Coming Home from War: Major Zachariah Fike and Purple Hearts Reunited
June 15, 2017
South Burlington Public Library (located in University Mall)
Major Zachariah Fike, a combat-wounded veteran and active-duty Army National Guard officer, founded the nonprofit Purple Hearts Reunited in 2012. It is the only organization in the country returning lost or stolen medals to veterans and military families at no cost. To date, Purple Hearts Reunited has been able to locate and return medals to over 200 military families. Major Fike will speak about his experiences returning what is often the last tangible piece of a veteran to his or her family. Refreshments will be served. This is the final program in the monthly Coming Home from War speaker series.
