Last Known Activity
Sgt. Joseph A. Blanco of Bloomington, Calif., had been in the U.S. Army three years. He grew up in and graduated from Bloomington High School an planned on attending college when he got out of the army, considering a career in law enforcement. His hobbies included physical fitness, including weightlifting and martial arts. He had earned the rank of black belt in Hap Ki Do at a studio in Fontana. He also taught young students there. During both tours, Cpl. Blanco would teach fellow soldiers how to defend themselves using Hap Ki Do. Joseph was described as having the soul of a child. Whether at home or abroad, Joseph Blanco doted on his 4-year-old nephew, Derek. Anytime he would write home in letters or e-mails or call, the very first thing to come out his mouth was, `How's Derek doing? Send me pictures of him. Tell me about him and things he's done.' Joseph was 25.
