Afghanistan, Iraq war veteran to speak in Camden
Camden — Mark Zambon, a U.S. Marine Corp. staff sergeant will speak at a sunset seminar Thursday, Aug. 7 at Camden Yacht Club.
Zambon will share an inspirational story of the human spirit, the power of teamwork and the great nation.
Zambon has six deployments under his belt — three in Iraq and three in Afghanistan.
On his fifth deployment, he lost three fingers on his left hand when a bomb he was trying to clear went off. He healed from that and opted to go back for a sixth deployment.
On that last deployment in Afghanistan, Zambon got a call to clear a bomb found in the field. On his way in, a secondary and unseen bomb went off when he stepped on it. He lost both of his legs above the knees.
Zambon has not lost a step and he is in Camden to compete in the Lobster SUP Cup.
The public is invited to hear Zambon's inspiring story “….rooted in community; of the power of the human spirit and team work and of our great nation.”
The talk begins at 7 p.m. For more information, call 236-7033.
