In 2010, Zach Dempsey joined the Marine Corps immediately after graduating from high school. After completing Basic Training and the Marine Combat Training course, Zach was trained in the Field Radio Operators course. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines (2/6). In 2012, Zach deployed to Afghanistan and served in Helmand Provence. Zach was also deployed to Okinawa, Japan.
Zach was a Platoon Radio Operator for the Weapons Platoon Golf Company and later for the CAAT Platoon Weapons Company.
Zach was a dedicated and respected Marine who worked diligently to promote to Sergeant before being honorably discharged in 2015.
Currently, Zach is at a police academy and he will soon be wearing a new service uniform, of which we greatly admire his continued service to his country as a veteran.
Zach Dempsey, we honor you.
