Blaine Queen
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 29, 1921
Death: Oct. 23, 1944

This man was KIA in WWII. He was in the 104th Infantry Division, Timberwolves and died in Germany or near Zundert. He was Cherokee and he was also from North Carolina. He received the Silver Star.

There is a man in The Netherlands who has Blaine's hat from WWII and would like to give it to the family. Please contact him if you are family at henkpolarbear@home.nl

I was notified of the possibility that this man may be interred in another Jenkins (Creek) Cemetery located in/near either Bryson City, Whittier, or Cherokee. The headstone shipment card says it was shipped to Cherokee.

There is some information online about his parents posthumously receiving the Silver Star for his heroism in action in Germany. When ammunition ran low he volunteered to leave the foxhole to get more ammunition. He was mortally wounded as he ran, but kept going to his destination until death took him. This history with some photos is found at www.history.navy.mil
