I will always remember the first time I saw Blaine as a young teenage girl. I thought he was the cutest boy in town. We lived in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina. I moved away to Charlotte, NC in 1964 and I will never forget when a relative called and told me Blaine had been killed. I shall never forget as long as I live. I often visit his grave site when I go back home. Blaine. I salute you and all who served in the Vietnam War. Dona Turner.
