Paul Blazejowski who enlisted in 1944 and served in Korea “…in combat with the 5th Marines as a small-arms repairman (MOS 2111) along the frontlines.” Later, serving as a Match Armorer (MOS 2112) Blazejowski contributed significantly to the accomplishments of many competitive marksman (which included serving in support of two Olympics as the U.S. Team Armorer) in addition to which he also contributed his “…ideas toward the betterment of the National Match Program.”

MGySgt. Paul Blazejowski was every champion's armorer. Turnbull honors his legacy.

The following quote is attributed to LtCol. McMillan...

 “You guys walk around here with medals on your chest, but if it wasn’t for these armorers, you wouldn’t have any.”
