Aggie Black Hawk Crash Victim's Funeral Held

Less than a week after the tragic crash of a Black Hawk helicopter on the Texas A&M campus, an Aggie killed has been remembered in his hometown.

Army Lt. Zac Cook, a graduate from A&M's class of 2008, was remembered in Lufkin during funeral services.

Cook and another soldier died when their chopper fell from the sky during a training exercise.

Saturday, friends and family remembered a young man who they say got maximum potential out of every day, living life to the fullest and achieving everything he wanted.

Cook, they said, held himself each day as a leader, a Christian and an Aggie.

Sympathies for Lt. Cook can be made to the Parsons Mounted Cavalry at A&M or the Zac Cook Scholarship Fund through the Lufkin High School Alumni Association.

A memorial service at A&M will be held Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Rudder Auditorium.
