Reflections for Patrolman John Blazek

Dear Grandpa,
I never got a chance to meet you;
but Grandma continued to raise 2 wonderful Sons!
Both followed your example and served our country the oldest in WWII & youngest enlisted for the The Korean War, but unfortunately was seriously injured stateside while in training.
We were brought up always respecting your service and admiring your accomplishments!
Now RIP with Grandma, Uncle and My Dad.

Patrolman Blazek,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army during World War I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
