An American Hero

Thank you for your service in the Vietnam War. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Hopefully one day I will be able to shake your hand and thank you for your sacrifice personally when I reach Heaven as well. Until then, I hope this message reaches your courageous soul. You will be remembered. Rest with the angels, your work is done.

BLANKENSHIPS ON THE WALL

I am the daughter of Major Leroy I. Blankenship, KIA 1 Apr 69. Family history says that all Blankenships in the United States are descended from one common ancestor who immigrated from England to Virginia as an indentured servant in the early 1600's. As such, all 15 men on the Wall with the surname Blankenship are distant cousins. If you knew Edgar or are related to him, you are welcome to contact me.
