A local teen will not let disrespect by a chosen few detour him from supporting American servicemen and women. Instead Zachary Puerto, 13, shifted his focus to repairing the military memorial he and his father erected in their front yard on Hwy. 9 North in Dawsonville after the tribute was recently vandalized. "It really upset me and disappointed me that someone would do that," he said.
