    Martin,
    I had crossed the river below your truck, just before the accident. What a tragic loss for all of us that day. Martin I aways enjoyed our talks about the Bay Area and being in your company. You were a good man & great Seabee. You remain in my prayers.
    RIP

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CN Martin George Blakely, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Thinking of you 2014

    Posted on 11/20/14 - by Dave Aro
    It was only briefly that we interacted. I heard you were from SF and was shocked that I didn't know you despite your being from my neighborhood and our age. I was raised not far from you in SF on 45th and Judah.

    The day of your accident, I was shocked, as most of us were, because we had all passed over that creaky bridge on a number of occasions and never thought much of it other than we were building a new one parallel and we wouldn't need to cross it when the new bridge was complete. As it was, we forded that river most of the time.

    Just so your family knows, you are not forgotten, you were one of my shipmates in MCB 4 even though we never went on ships.

    Just know that someday, our paths will cross again. RIP...

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
