I truly appreciate the care in which you endeavor to consider as you walk your life's paths.

You are a fine example of humanity, especially now that you are getting close to your "fighting weight".

Thanks Stan,

At the very least, it is the duty of all veterans to acknowledge the passing of another veteran. We all did not walk the same path or serve in the same area or even serve in the same era, however all at one time placed their future in the hands of a higher authority with trust and devotion to duty. Without trying to go political, that is why it is so important that we carefully choose our elected leaders.

Sometimes it is a silent acknowledgement and sometimes it is a public acknowledgement. But in every case they earned at least a respectful recognition that the service they rendered is appreciated and not forgotten by those of us who did not know them but shared their devotion.

God Bless you Bobby Tony.

This is profoundly good information that many people in Beaufort County did not know; I did not know it.

Rudolph and I discussed his military action, but he never delved too deep. I was always very proud to have Rudolph as one of my constituents. He was a wonderful human being, always exhibiting fine behavior.

As is my usual custom, I looked up the link for Marlin Rudolph “Rudy” Blake when I read this note about him being a veteran. As it turns out he was a participant in my war though he aged me by 14 years. May he rest in peace, having done his duty and lived a long and hopefully fruitful life. Here is the link.

"Mr. Blake’s military career took him to many American cities as well as the Philippines, Iran and Thailand. He first was an aircraft mechanic who worked his way up to a fighter pilot and completed 100 missions in Vietnam."

(Marlin) Rudolf Blake was a fighter pilot, an honest real estate broker, a true Conservative and as good a man as can be expected, and I do well appreciate his service and his friendship, albeit in the distant past.

Dear Lord, it is my prayer that you create us more men like your good, humble and noble son, Rudolf Blake, if we are to survive as a Republic. Amen.
