DEAR LIEUTENANT BLASSIE,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A FIXED WING PILOT. WHEN YOU WERE RECOVERED, I READ YOU WERE PLACED IN THE TOMB OF THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER - A PLACE OF HONOR - FROM 1984 TO 1998. I AM GLAD YOU YOUR FAMILY HAS YOU BACK. WELCOME HOME. IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE.. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE. MANY OF US HAVE BEGUN OUR JOURNEY TO EASTER. AND YOU ARE ALL IN OUR PRAYERS.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Michael Joseph Blassie, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Lt. Blassie was in charge of the life support section I was assigned to life support unit ! Dan rich and I were there on the day he was shot down IT was about a week before when he came back from a mission that we were joking about a round that was found in his ejection seat! we told him that he better watch out his number could be up and he just laught ! I still remember when they flew the missing man formation over the church in honor of him ! I still have flash backs about that day!

BIEN HOA

I remember Lt Blassie from my tour at Bien Hoa 71-72. I was NCOIC of Flight Medicine and was honoured to have met him and other pilots of the 8th SOS. The 8th SOS flew many sorties during that Easter Offensive of '72 and brought honour to themselves and the Air Force...Tho if truth be told they were not after medals or awards - but as all of us were just doing our jobs.......to Mike and others lost I say thank you and God bless................
