US Marine Thomas Blair's death has brought the war much closer to home for some who realized he was exceptional a long time ago.

Blair's grandmother used to bring him to Arrow Heights Baptist Church as a child. Several members, like Kelly Keech, have fond memories of the boy who grew up to serve his country. "The reason I remember him is because I was the Cub Scout leader and whenever he would show up he was always happy ready to do what needed to be done in the evening.”

The members of Arrow Heights Church are also starting a support group for military families dealing with loved ones serving overseas.
