LONGVIEW (KYTX) -  Longview Fire Marshal Johnny Zackary gave a medal to a wounded veteran in Longview. The medal is from Zackary's completion of The Wounded Warrior Half Marathon in Dallas. 

Army Veteran John Keith loss his left leg in Baghdad in 2004. He says he was hit with an RPG. The two met at a small group devotional at Mobberly Baptist Church and Zackary says Keith immediately inspired him. Keith says gestures like these are appreciated. 


"It means a lot to me. We've known each other for a very short period of time and it really touched me when he said he would run it for me." - John Keith, Veteran
