Spec Clinton Coy Blodgett
Birth: Aug. 5, 1987
Ardmore
Carter County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: May 26, 2007
Baghdad, Iraq

Spc. Blodgett of Pekin, Ind. and Wilson Oklahoma loved fishing, hunting and shooting guns. He was fun-loving, dependable and loved being in the service of his country in Iraq. Coy was just 17 when his parents signed a consent form, so he could join the army. He followed in the footsteps of his father, who served in the National Guard during the Persian Gulf War in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. Coy loved hunting and fishing ever since he was a young boy. He was also a natural athlete who excelled at everything from football to snowboarding. Coy lived with his father after his parents split up and moved between Oklahoma and Alaska as his father's oil company job dictated. He had been deployed 18 months and was due home but his time was recently extended another 10 months. He was a warrior all the way growing up from a baby and had a strong desire to fight for his country after 9-11. About returning to Iraq, he would say, "I've got to go back. I've got business I got to take care of." He'd already lost a few friends over there. He planned to continue to work in Iraq after his military duty to provide security for the oil companies there. Coy's loyalty to his country was evident in the message tattooed on his arm from the Bible verse: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." He died when he used his body to block a bomb equiped camera that had been thrown at the Humvee he was in. His actions saved the lives of the four soldiers that were riding with him. He was 19.
