Thank you, Brave Airman

Thank you, 1LT Michael J. Blassie, for your service and your sacrifice for our country, for our freedoms. The words thank you seem so inadequate to offer for your sacrifice. May our country and our citizens always remember you and your fellow service members whose names appear on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. So glad your remains were identified and reburied in your hometown. Rest In Heavenly Peace, Brave Airman.
