I really do not know the best place to post this, in fact I am a little hesitant to post it at all. I guess I just need a shoulder to cry on at the moment.

Mere hours after I graduated yesterday, my father died. He was the grandest man I ever met and we had become very close over the past few years. He was a great American hero, and was the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.

He entered the Army at the age of 17 to avoid being drafted. He went in as a conscinsious objector and refused to carry a gun. He was given a trench knife and a job as a medical corpsman on the front lines. The citation for his medal reads:

Citation:
Sgt. Bleak, a member of the medical company, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and indomitable courage above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. As a medical aidman, he volunteered to accompany a reconnaissance patrol committed to engage the enemy and capture a prisoner for interrogation. Forging up the rugged slope of the key terrain, the group was subjected to intense automatic weapons and small arms fire and suffered several casualties. After administering to the wounded, he continued to advance with the patrol. Nearing the military crest of the hill, while attempting to cross the fire-swept area to attend the wounded, he came under hostile fire from a small group of the enemy concealed in a trench. Entering the trench he closed with the enemy, killed 2 with bare hands and a third with his trench knife. Moving from the emplacement, he saw a concussion grenade fall in front of a companion and, quickly shifting his position, shielded the man from the impact of the blast. Later, while ministering to the wounded, he was struck by a hostile bullet but, despite the wound, he undertook to evacuate a wounded comrade. As he moved down the hill with his heavy burden, he was attacked by 2 enemy soldiers with fixed bayonets. Closing with the aggressors, he grabbed them and smacked their heads together, then carried his helpless comrade down the hill to safety. Sgt. Bleak's dauntless courage and intrepid actions reflect utmost credit upon himself and are in keeping with the honored traditions of the military service.



I had not cried yet, but as I write this, the tears are starting to flow. I love you Dad, and I will miss you. Rest in peace and go with God.

Weird me. I don't know you other than words on a screen, yet I'm sitting here teary-eyed.

In my next life, I aspire to have the chance to sit and just listen to the stories of folks such as your dad. These are the folks that inspire me to muck through things and strive to be better just so I can make the cut.

I can only think that he let go while basking in the pride of what you've done with the lemons that life had handed you. My wish is that as the fog of grief begins to lift, that you're able to recognize what a wonderful gift you sent your dad off into the realm that lies ahead of him.


(((Barbara and DD)))

I'm so glad you were close to your dad in his final years. That means so much.

And you know what? Now we know where you got the courage you needed to start over after personal adversity, go back to school and make a new life for yourself. Must run in the family. I am sure you made your dad very proud.

What a wonderful way to remember your dad. And how incredibly bittersweet an accomplishment your graduation must feel right now, to have such a big loss within hours.

take care of yourself, and of your lovely daughter. I expect she's sad about her grandfather too.

Barbara, my sincere condolences. I hope you take comfort in knowing how much pride and joy your accomplishments gave to your father in his last hours on earth.

I ran across a special Veteran's Day story about your father that was put together by the Idaho Historical Society. From this note, it appears that it ran back in 1995:

April 20, 1995 was designated as Sgt. David B. Bleak day; and the new medical facility at Ft. Sill was named the Sgt. David B. Bleak Troop Medical Clinic.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~idbutte/ArcoMedal.html

There are some amazing personal recollections of that day which personalize your father's actions beyond what was listed in his citation. I particularly like the description of how he did what he had to do, in order to get close to his wounded comrades:
"He tended to dismiss the facts by skipping over the action and saying something to the effect "...a couple of 'em got too close".. (the enemy). "

May he rest in peace,

Jeanie

Just wanted you to know that your father's obit ran in my hometown newspaper in West Texas. I was brought to tears by your brother's quote that your dad said he carried that medal for others who acted just as courageously, but did not receive the recognition.

All the best.
