An Iowa native who died while serving with the Marines in Afghanistan will be remembered in services Friday. Twenty-two-year old Corporal Zachary Reiff, a 2007 graduate of Preston High School, was on his second tour in Afghanistan when he was hit by an improvised explosive device in the Helmand Province on November 18th.
He died three days later from wounds he received in the explosion. Reiff had survived being wounded in an earlier tour and volunteered to return to Afghanistan. Memorial services are set for 10:30 Friday in Preston.
Reiff is survived by his parents Mathew and Marcia, along with a brother and sister.
