SGT Blanchette was a New Hampshire National Guardsman called up to serve in South Vietnam. Only a few days before they were to return home, he and four others were killed when their 5-ton truck hit a land mine on Highway 13, known as "Thunder Road", about 32 miles from Saigon. Some 2,000 mourners attended their joint funeral in Manchester. City officials called it the "saddest place, the saddest day in the city's history."
