  • Two generations of Marines ---One Bedroom

    Posted on 2/26/16 - by Russ T. Trudel russtrudel63@yahoo.com
    I write this from one Marine to another. Tom, my name is Russ Thomas Trudel, and my mother Debby was paired up to be your graduation line partner at Lewis Mills. Years later my parents bought your family home on Stone Road in Burlington, CT off of your parents, and we moved in when I was eight years old. My bedroom was your old room. I grew up drawing monsters and military guys and tanks etc., and when we began remodeling the house we found drawings in the attic that you drew of the exact same things. I grew up playing in the same woods and sleeping out in the old Ham radio shed that was your dad's, and always felt like somehow you were there. After highschool, I decided to join the Marine Corps myself, and while stationed at Camp Lejeune, I made a couple trips to Washington DC to visit another Marine Buddy of mine. While there, I visited the Vietnam Memorial Wall and made a rubbing of your name. Even though I did not know you personally, I always felt like I knew you from growing up in the same place, and have honored and will continue to honor your memory for years to come as a Marine brother. Semper Fidelis Tommy!!! OOrah Marine!!! You will never be forgotten!!!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/7/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Thomas Joseph Blanchard, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I found this memorial card when clearing out my grandmothers effects.


    It seems that Tom was her cousin.


    Her aunt Lizzie emigrated from Belfast to USA after World War II. Tom was, I believe, her son. If anyone can confirm this, or knew Tom's family, please e-mail me. Thanks

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

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.
