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 James or are related to him, you are welcome to contact me.

I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU JIM

You and I spent many days together playing baseball and football and trading baseball and football cards! You were like my big brother ! You taught me a lot about sports and life! I will never forget you Jim. We both grew up in Susquehanna Village in Independence, MO. When I learned of your passing in Vietnam I was shocked!!! I am also a Vietnam Vet and so this hits me twice as hard! God bless you and your wife and kids! I think of you each day. RIP!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT James Oris Blankenship, 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
