About Capt. Zak
Since the age of 6 or 7 I can remember my Grandfather telling me stories about his service in the CBI Theater of Operations during WWII. He was drafted in January of 1943 and served with the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps., 472nd Truck Regiment. He was one of the many truck drivers to supply a well known group of soldiers known as "Merrill's Murauders" He served until contracting Malaria and honorably discharged in June of 1945.
Growing up I was always fascinated with all things related to WWII. The movies, uniforms, gear, tactics, veteran's stories, Patton, Hitler, Eisenhower, Rommel...you name it and I read about it! When I was 13 I started collecting militaria, that is when I had the dream of someday opening up an Army Surplus store. I know it sounds silly, but I was a dumb little kid that wanted to have a "cool" job.
From the age of 17 to 26 I embarked on a fairly successful, semi-professional music career. I released a few independent CD's with a few bands and was living the rock & roll life. In 1994 I witnessed a D-Day re-enactment at Montrose Harbor, on Lake Michigan here in Chicago, IL and I was bitten by the WWII Re-enacting bug. Then in 1997 I became a father and my life changed forever. My son is now 11 years old and as much into WWII as I am.
In 2003 I stumbled upon the WWII Airsoft Association while on-line. I became a member and have since done my best to promote WWII Airsoft in the Midwest as well as nationally as the groups Treasurer. About the same time I became a member of the WW2AA, I had the idea to start a business online that catered to not only WWII re-enacting, but to WWII Airsofters as well. I'm proud to say that after 2 years of research, planning, & preparations Capt Zak's Supply Depot is open for business. Take a look around the site, visit the various links and feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
