DHC’s Summer of Success Stories: Veteran Spotlight with Lyle Blalock

Lyle on the front porch of his apartment, sitting in his Davidson College rocking chair.

Lyle moved into a DHC apartment in December 2015. He was referred by a friend who had a relative living at Creekside Corner at the time. Lyle is a Davidson College alum; he graduated in the class of 1965 and has lived in the surrounding area ever since. When DHC first started accepting applications for the veterans’ duplex, Lyle was approved to move in. But, shortly thereafter, Lyle was admitted to the VA hospital in Salisbury after suffering from aneurysms. Lyle could no longer accept the apartment because of his health and the uncertainty of when he would be released. Several months later, one veterans’ apartment was still available and Lyle’s health had improved; Lyle was able to move in before the end of 2015.

Lyle enjoys sitting in his Davidson College rocking chair on the front porch. 52 years after graduating, Lyle still loves this community; he loves that the people are so nice and that everything is conveniently located. He is grateful for his affordable apartment and that the timing worked out so well.
