IWO JIMA KIA Jack Seay Blankenhorn USMC ID Bracelet

Recommended Posts

I wanted to make a tribute to this brave Marine today on the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima. Jack Seay Blankenhorn made the ultimate sacrifice for his country on March 3rd, 1945 at Iwo Jima. Jack was in Co. H of the 26th Marines, 5th Marine Division. Jack was killed by Japanese artillery fire in the vicinity of X-RAY AND YOKE North on the morning of March 3rd. Back in December, I traveled to Alabama and visited his grave sight and the house he grew up in. It was a very emotional trip and one I will never forget. Listed below is some important information from his service file. Also listed is his ID Bracelet, as well as his fiance's ID Bracelet. I feel his ID Bracelet is the most important item of his that was sent back home. These items remain the most important items in my collection. Jack's service to our country will never be forgotten.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)
