My name is Zach, my forum name is Zeke1985. I'm 33 years old originally from KY and currently living in Colorado. I became interested in ww2 as a little kid, mostly fascinated by the aircraft. My grandad was a waist gunner as well as a stint as a tail gunner on B17s(the heavy in the foreground of my profile pic was a plane he a flew on at some point, we have his dairy and tail numbers of the planes he crewed). He was shot down over occupied France, evaded capture before he was taken in by members of the French Resistance. I've actually got a recording he did I in the early 1980s of him telling about his final mission. Anyway so I am obviously interested in the air war as well as all aspects of the Eastern Front. Hobbies I'm into are backpacking, which is the reason I moved to Colorado. I am also an avid gun owner and love to visit the range I am a member of. I do a decent amount of pc gaming, currently getting into battlefield 1. I went o school for graphic communications and photography. I am currently about to finish reading Army of Evil: A History of the SS by Adrian Weale.
