Memorial Day: Share About a Veteran You Know

In honor of Memorial Day, we want to hear about military members you know who have lost their lives. Mention them in the comments or share a photo of them in this article.

For Memorial Day last year, Patch recognized fallen San Marino native 2nd Lieutenant James P. Blecksmith of the Marines, who was 24 years old when he was killed on November 11, 2004 during the assault on Fallujah as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Do you know any veterans who have lost their lives in the line of duty? Recognize them this Memorial Day by mentioning their names in the comments and/or uploading a photo of them straight to this article.

You can honor Lt Blecksmith by visiting his grave at San Gabriel Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSfn=james&GSmid=23317045&GRid=9917529&
