Sergeant Blas Villalobos
Reflections on this veteran's military service
Submitted by Vanessa Gorski-Villalobos
Blas bravely made the decision to join the Marine Corps in 1999 not knowing what he might face, and his service was made even more important after the September 11th attacks. Blas' experiences ranged from typical Western Pacific deployment to combat operations in Iraq. Not only did he selflessly serve our country, but he continues to serve the veteran population at local, state, and federal levels.
Blas lives in Lakewood.
