SPC Clement J. Blazewick, from Pittsburgh, served in the Vietnam War as a laboratory technician at the 93rd Evacuation Hospital in South Vietnam from March 1 to September 22, 1966. During this time he recorded blood transfusions given to combat casualties in a hospital ledger book. Today, this ledger provides a snapshot of not only how many American soldiers were being treated but, by reading between the lines, how much effort was put forth to save them. SPC Blazewick donated his ledger to Soldiers & Sailors in 2016 and by researching the 760 names recorded; we have identified more than 45 who did not survive and whose names appear today on the Vietnam Wall. Visit the museum on Thursday, January 10th to view this unique piece of history and discover the results of our research.
