Vietnam Reflections: Patrick Lynn Blair

Patrick Lynn Blair: Not Just A Name On The Wall (originally published 5/28/2007)

I just re-read N2L’s tribute to his old friend Pat Blair, and I invite you to do the same.  I remember N2L telling me that his tribute was read aloud at his 45th high school reunion.  It was a touching, poignant moment.  Not a dry eye in the house.

Yesterday, I received a note from one of the administrators of the Facebook site “Vietnam Reflections – Fallen Heroes.”  He told me that they had recently published a tribute to Pat, and he invited our readers to visit.  Here is the link, and an excerpt:

SERGEANT PATRICK LYNN BLAIR WAS BORN ON 26 MAY 1949. HE GREW UP IN THE SMALL TOWN OF MARSHALL, TEXAS. HE WORKED IN HIS SPARE TIME AND HE LOVED BASEBALL AND WAS VERY COMPETITIVE IN LITTLE LEAGUE AND THEN THE BABE RUTH LEAGUE..HE GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL A SEMESTER EARLY AND ENLISTED IN THE ARMY IN EARLY 1968.HE CAME BACK FOR HIS GRADUATION 1 JUNE 1968. HE HAD MISSED THE SIMPLE LIFE OF A SMALL TOWN AND HIS MOTHER’S HOME COOKING.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the fine folks at Vietnam Reflections for remembering our fallen heroes in such a noble fashion.  I invite all of our readers to drop by and show your support of their efforts by joining this group.
