BRIEF: Boozman to honor late Alma veteran, civil servant
Times Record - 3/20/2017
March 20--U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., will recognize Warren Blaylock of Alma this week in a speech on the Senate floor, according to a news release.
Boozman expressed his sympathy in the passing of Blaylock, a World War II veteran and public servant who died March 9 at age 96.
Blaylock served as a combat medic during World War II, and in 2009, Boozman presented him with the medals he earned in service. When Blaylock was inducted into the Arkansas Military Hall of Fame in 2015, Boozman participated in the ceremony.
"Even after he left the service, Warren spent the rest of his life giving back to his community and advocating for causes he believed in," Boozman will state in his speech, according to the release.
"I very much appreciate Warren's service, and even more his friendship, encouragement and the amazing example he set. I will miss him and the vital role he played in his community and in Arkansas. He leaves a huge void that will be hard to fill, but I hope that all those who witnessed his committed service to his fellow man will join me in resolving to live and love more like Warren as a way to honor him and his legacy."
