From Vicki Zeigler 02/13/06:

Hello Again!!!
Here is another picture of my son.

     

He was an amazing person. I have 2 stories that I would like to share with you.
First, Kenny was suppose to be home the Saturday before Mother's Day for R&R. There was a group of 4 soldiers that were to leave. All of a sudden, another soldier had to get home because his wife had gone into labor. So, one of the others had to be pushed back. Kenny volunteered to wait until later. The following Thursday (when he was suppose to be home) he was killed.
Secondly, After the accident, Kenny was flown to an aid station. He had but a breath left. Sgt. Thomas, one of his good friends and a leader of his outfit, leaned down and said, "Don't worry about mom, we'll take care of her." With that he left go. He always worried about me. He was the best son any mother could have ever asked for.
Thank you for the web site. It holds a very special place in my heart. Vicki Zeigler

Zeigler, ziggy, he was an amazing person. always looking out for everyone else. most importantly his mom, he loved her more than life itself. everything his mother said is true. it was a very sad day after that IED went off.

From Vicki Zeigler 07/01/05:

My son is (was) the most amazing person I know (knew). He always gave of himself and never asked anything in return. After 9/11, Kenny decided to join the Army to fight for the country that he loved. He believed 110% in what he was doing. He was an accomplished artist and guitar player. He lived life to the fullest. He was my rock and was always there for me when I needed him.

Kenny I love you infinity and beyond!!!!!!!! God keep you safe in his loving arms until we meet again. ROCK OF THE MARNE!! Love MOM
