Terre Haute Marine reservist honored at Pacers game

Lance Corporal Joshua Bleill of Greenfield, was presented with a medal commemorating his efforts as an Indiana Hero by Troy Murphy of the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2007, at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Lance Corporal Bleill was just two weeks into his service in Iraq when his humvee was struck by a roadside bomb, killing two marines with him and taking Lance Corporal Bleill’s legs.

All three marines were members of the Terre Haute-based Marine reserve unit.

Joshua continues to undergo therapy at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC and believes that there are reasons that this happened, stating that he has a new mission at hand, maybe that of helping other Marines that get in this same situation.

"Joshua’s humanitarian spirit and commitment to his community and his country has made an exceptional and everlasting contribution to the State of Indiana," the Pacers said in a news release.
