JACKSONVILLE, Ark. — The community is rallying to help a disabled veteran whose Jacksonville home was broken into and ransacked.

Sgt. Matt Zajac was staying with a friend so he wouldn’t be alone during the coronavirus pandemic. He says a neighbor spotted a door and window that busted open and called police.

“My house it looked just like some scenes I’ve come on in Baghdad,” Zajac said.

Zajac says almost everything of value was going, including TV’s, ammunition, and more than a dozen guns. He calls some of the guns irreplaceable family heirlooms.  

“My father’s firearms, he passed away a few years ago, a lot of that was my father’s so that didn’t feel too good obviously,” Zajac added.

Dozens in the community have since helped raise funds to replace what was lost. More information about that push can be found by clicking here.
