  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SN Blaine Henry Walsh, 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

  • The Broadcaster's Son

    Blaine was from Thiensville and there was no record of him anywhere. I recently went to the Brown County Library where they had the Paper Wall displayed. I found Blaine’s obituary. It stated he was the son a famous baseball broadcaster for the old Milwaukee Braves. The family had recently moved to Dunwoody, Georgia and that the burial would occur there. I found Blaine at Arlington Memorial Park in Sandy Springs, Georgia, just to the west of Dunwoody. I bet young Blaine was thrilled hearing his dad’s voice announcing the ball games over the radio. He and rest of Milwaukee must have been heart stuck when the team left town in 65. Blaine was a young man of 20 when he died around Thanksgiving of 1969.
