The John W. Blake Story



John W. Blake is a native Newfoundlander, proud Canadian and Vietnam Veteran.  John was an U.S. Army Airborne Ranger serving with the 173rd and 75th Rangers.  He has the honorable distinction of being the first Newfoundlander to earn the Green Beret.

Yet, after his sudden death, the result of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the Canadian government refused to allow his remains to be buried in the Field of Honor at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.  The Field of Honor is the only existing military cemetery in St. John's.

John Blake's family has started a Nationwide Campaign to correct this wrong.  If you would like more information about this campaign or would like to learn how you can help, follow the link below.
