    This is my 2nd message for you. The last post was 18 years ago, I still love and miss you. I was just 15 years old when you passed but you always spent time with me playing checkers, Chinese checkers and other games and just talking. You ALWAYS had time for me, you never acted like I was bothering you. You were so SPECIAL to me. Last year I finally got to see the Traveling Wall and find your name. I NEVER wanted to believe you were really gone since we never had an open casket. I was always sure I would find you some day. Just wanted you to know how special you made me feel and loved. You were one very AWESOME 1st cousin Frankie and I miss you even after all these years. I am so PROUD of you.

    I lived next to Frank and we went into the Army,Boot Canp , Ft Rucker Fix Wing School then Ft Benning together. THen he wenet to Germany and I went to Viet Nam. We saw each other while on leave and swop stories. We had a good time, but then he was shipped to Viet Nam and I went back to Ft Rucker and then learned that he was KIA. That hit home for me as we went through so much of our Army life together. I miss his smile and stories, rest in peace is God's arms my brother.

    It is 50 years ago today that President Kennedy was murdered in Dallas, Texas. You were only 20 years old, and about to be 21 the next week.
    We would never have thought that 3 years later you would die in your
    Huey while on a rescue mission. They lied to us about certain things that
    happened on that day for reasons that I don't understand. Of course the
    government has lied to our nation about many things over the years and
    will do the same for generations. If Kennedy had lived he had made a
    promise to have all troops out of Vietnam by the end of 1965. He truly
    felt that we should not be involved with the situation that he inherited from
    the previous leader of our country. You would be turning 71 this coming
    Thanksgiving and I really would have liked to spend those missing years
    with you and to know what king of person you had become. All of the holidays
    after that were sad for our family. I always try to like Thanksgiving and remember all of those great family dinners with the relatives before your
    life ended. Our Dad had the same birthday as yours and many times it
    would be Thanksgiving Day. This was something that made that day
    something special. Our family was heartbroken and it destroyed us all.
    Nothing was ever the same after that. The war went on for many years
    and thousands of our young men died in vain for the rich people of this
    country. It makes me cry to think about what you would have become.
    Dear brother I never was able to say that I loved you, because that was
    never said in those days. Well Frank I love you and always will. I miss
    your smile and all of the fun times we had . Here's to you Frank!!!!!!!!!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 8/7/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear PFC Frank Lee Blevins, 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
