Mike was a great guy

I remember meeting Mike from 1968 after he had completed Artillery OCS , at Ft. Sill, OK. He was the squad leader of Pershing Missile Instructors, most of whom were drafted college graduates. The Army back then was taking highly qualified High School graduates as OCS candidates. All of us became close friends, even going to Lawton most evenings for a drink or ten. Above all, we took him under our wings . Eventually, he got tired of babysitting our group and wanted a job with promotion potential. That's when he was sent to Helicopter Pilot School. We missed a dear friend when he left. I soon returned to civilian life in Kansas City and some time in the Summer of 1970, I noted a large section of the KC Star newspaper was a picture of Mike's wife receiving a medal at his funeral. I was shocked to hear of his passing and will forever remember him.

To my father

I wish I had the chance to get to know you. You have been in my heart and thoughts everyday as I have grown up. I know you look down upon my family and one day we will meet on the other side.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Michael John Blanscet, 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

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Michael John BLANSCET, USA...who died for our country!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and tremblin g hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
