"Will never forget you buddy!"
John Galvan of Edmond, OK

We want to thank you for your service. My twin sons were listening to a church member tonight telling your personal story and sacrifice. They heard about your dog Scrappy. You left a big impression on my ten year olds. God Bless you and your family. My son Jack wants to say, "thank you for your service and your sacrifice. We appreciate it a lot. Thank you.""
Linda, Jack and Avery Ha of Canton Michigan

I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for Country-not just during OIF but when you served in Afghanistan as well. And to your family and loved ones I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. After reading all the reflections left here for you all I can say is you sound like one hell of a Soldier and NCO and I wish I could've have had the honor of serving with you when I served in the Military.

Airborne All The away!"

When I think you are being forgotten..voila, a beautiful new person comes into our life to remind us how precious our life has been to have had you, my son, in it. Blum's Landing has come to fruition with the commitment Dad and many volunteers have had. Continue to be our guardian angel and let your buddies know we want to give back...we want them to come celebrate life,to tell stories, to enjoy the beautiful outdoors you treasured, and in that, you are right by us laughing and saying life is good.

Memorial Day 2011 of Texas

"Blumberg, you are one of the guys in my past that I'll never forget. One of the first to welcome me when I got to Korea and make me feel at home. You were a true battle buddy and a great soldier. I remember that time you got into that fight in downtown Munsan and when you got back I was the first to see your face all beat up. I couldn't believe you were still smiling and spittin out blood at the same time. I went and got SSG Thomas and he snuck the whole squad out and found the guy that did that to you. Remember we beat the crap outta that guy and sent him back ten times worse. Then got chased by the MP's through that rice patty and snuck back onto Camp Giant. That seems like it happend a million years ago. I was looking for old buddys online and ran into Rearick who told me what happened. I couldn't believe it and had to see if it was the same Trevor Blumberg. You will be missed my friend but never forgotten."

"Even though I never had the pleasure to talk with you, I feel as I know you so well. You always cross my mind and I always feel a sense of closeness to you. Since the day I had to say good-bye and thank you for your service, I have always admired you for your strength and courage. The sacrifice you have made for our country will never be forgotten. This year I have decided to order the Heroís Bracelet in your Honor/Memory. I have lost so many brothers and sisters while serving my country and I hold you closest to my heart. Hard to believe it will be seven years this September. I pray that your family is well and they are with comfort knowing you are with Jesus. Till we see each other again...."
MSgt Dena Ann Lebo, USAF of Andrews AFB, MD

"Well Blum, it's been over 6 years now and I am still thinking about you every day. I wore a rememberance bracelet on my wrist to remind me of you and the sacrifice you made that day in Fallujah. My bracelet broke since I have been here in Afghanistan but it is high on my priority list to get another when I return to the states. Talked to T the other day on the internet and he sent a picture of us on the ole soft skin that we rode around in. Made me think of you at that time too. That picture was taken 3 days after you were killed. You would be happy to know that we have armored vehicles to ride around in now. I've hit 2 IED's here in Afghanistan and it still sucks but it is much better than soft skin and sandbags. You were a good friend, great Paratrooper and I am sure that I will remember you well for the rest of my life. The 14th of September will forever be ingrained in my mind. I lost a great friend that day. Rest in peace Blum."
Joshua Collins of Garfield, Arkansas

Your a great inspiration to all and I will be proud to one day tell my daughter how I got to know a hero."
Matt Mestrovich of Columbus, OH/Plymouth, MI

"From all the stories i have heard about you, you were so incredible. brave doesn't even begin to describe you. someone i know misses you greatly, but you will always be in your familie's hearts. rest in peace."

"Trev.. I can't believe it has already been 5 years. You have no idea how hard it is to wear your dog tags around my neck daily. When I pick them up off the night stand every morning, a little ball forces its way up my throat. Your sacrifice inspires me day to day to do my best. That is why I have made the decision to serve my country, just like you did. Though you are not the sole reason, you have a major contributing factor to my decision. All I know is that you are one of Gods best, and thats why he chose to take you back. He needed you to watch over and protect all his children. Although I know very many miss you, we all know you are watching us and smiling with that devilish smirk of yours, with a lip in and a big bottle of Jack in your hand. I love you Trevor. You are forever in my heart."
Eric Coogan

"I have never met Trevor, but I see his name everyday. My husband was in the same vehicle when they hit the explosive devices. My husband has a beautiful tattoo in remembrance of Trevor on his left forearm. He speaks of him fondly and often. My thoughts and prayers are with Trevor's family."
Kristin Boyd of Fayetteville, NC

"SGT Blumberg:
I have worn your name around my wrist for the past three years. Your dedication, sacrifice, and memory have motivated and inspired me through my beginning years of my Army career. When things have gotten tough and when obstacles have seemed impossible, I simply glance at my wrist. I remember that it is because of fine men and women like you that I strive to be the best leader that I might possibly be. It is truly an honor to share your uniform. God Bless."

You will always be my #1 Hero I love you forever. what keeps me goin is I know we'll meet again someday in Heaven! I've prayed for the past five years "God bless Trevor's family, and comfort them through this loss!" To the family, my thoughts and prayers are with you always xoxo"
Becky Little of Canton, MI

"Hey buddy its been almost 5 years now and I have been reading all of the post that our friends have left you. But I just couldnt bring myself to say anything until now. Remember when you and I were sent to Iraq ADVON, and we had to get the trucks form Kuwait to Camp Mercury before the rest of the company showed up? Well if you remember that then you will remember that I ran out of Copenhagen and borrowed a dip from you. I havent for got about that, it sounds trivial but that is what has been nagging at me for all of these years and thats how I have remembered you for all of these years. As a generous man who was willing to give up a you last dip if that is what it took to help someone in need. Well buddy I am ready to return that dip, so when I leave this world and come up we can catch up and compare stories over that dip of Copenhagen. And sorry it took so long to write, you are just missed. See you soon buddy. And to the parents of this soldier, there are no words to discribe what you son molded into, he IS as great man and an even better friend."
SSG Patrick J. Campbell of Johnsonville, SC

Yesterday I received a bracelet in the mail with your name on it. We've never met, yet I know one day we will. I want to let you know that I will forever be grateful for the sacrifice you have made for me, my family, and our great nation. I will wear your name on my wrist every day as a tribute to you and as a constant reminder of that sacrifice. God Bless you Trevor."
SGT Scott Strahammer of Scottsdale, AZ

"I cant believe it.. 4 years you have been gone.. seems like just yesterday I got the fateful phone call from my mom.. I love you bud.. Today I presented a paper to my class about you.. I had to write a monologue on the saddest moment of my life.. A girl came up before I went up and criticized every American soldier out there. I dropped to floor and started crying. She quoted a punk band song which stated that fallen soldiers are NOT heroes, but just another statistic for a pointless cause. I gathered myself and presented my paper, after I was done.. everyone cried. Everyone was in tears but this girl. I just looked at her and said "the man I talked about in this paper, would proudly die over and over for you so you can talk your garbage about him and every other American heart over seas." right after that, she broke down and cried.. I think abouthca every day.. I love you man.. so so very much.. Forever in my heart.. ECoogz@gmail.com"

Mechanics of fort bragg, nc

"I knew this fine young man... and his loss was tragic. It was a wakeup call for the entire battalion because we had only been in Fallujah for just a week after spending nearly a week in Kuwait. His death occured within just a few short days of our unit assuming the mission from the unit that we replaced in the area. Several other soldiers sustained wounds from that IED, as well: Perez, Van Dusen... and two more whose names I forget. Their vehicle was a total write-off. It enraged the rest of us and definately opened our eyes to the truth that "this was no Afghanistan". We became MUCH more aggressive while on patrols.
I worked with him often before deploying to both Afghanistan and Iraq, since, as a Weapons Squad Leader in B/1-504th PIR, I conducted quite a bit of the training for the M240B machine gun teams.

He is truly missed. I deeply respect him because he always approached every situation with enthusiasm, he was very competent, and he knew what we were fighting for which helped him motivate the other soldiers around him. An excellent soldier.... and a terrific person."
Samuel A. Oglesby of FT Benning, GA

"i'll never forget good old trev. he was one of the best friends any one could ask for. he always had a way to make you smile and forget your worries. i'll never forget that quirkey smile of his and his love for jack daniel! i miss you buddy"
rachel baughman of garden city, mi

"Trevor, I miss you bud. You are not forgotten. You are with me every day.

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying "Who shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then said I, "Here am I Lord...send me."

Mr Blumberg, as I told you the last time I saw you in LTC Hagen's office, your son was an outstanding soldier, a good friend, and a great man. He is truly missed by those of us here he left behind. I take solace in the courage that you have shown in the face of such adversity, and comfort in the knowledge that Trevor is in a better place now.
And that one day when we see him again, he'll greet us with a smile and drink.
CPT Eric Brown of Fort Bragg, NC

"This has taken a long time for me to write. Blum came B Co just before we deployed to Afghanistan, and quickly became my friend.

SGT Gonzalez, Gerardo of A Troop 8-10 CAV, 4ID. Ft. Hood TX

"I did not know you but I have heard great things about you. My husband served with you (82nd Airborne) in Iraq and talks about you all the time. He said you are a good person and a good friend. When yall got your deployement notices I started praying then not just for my husband (Spc. Patrick Campbell) but for all of you. I have a picture of my husband at your services in Iraq and it sadly deepened my husbands heart when you died. I just want you & your family to know that your death gave that whole company the desire to fight even harder for what they believed in (you & thier families). You will always hold a special place in my husbands heart and mine. Our sincere condolences to your family and loved ones.

"Though I never got to know Trever alot, I was hurt to hear of his death. Such a young and vibrant life to be taken. I remember the day that it happened (I was in C.Co 1/504) it was such a tragedy...We all felt it...To his family, I am sorry for yours and his sacrifice.

"TO: The Loving Parents of Trevor. I have had the honor of knowing your son since he was in the 6th grade, through our 3rd son Clifton. They went to school together, and played numorous times at my home. Skateboarding, Tackle Football, Baseball, ect...too numorous to mention. I will truley miss that Angelic Face with his gorgeous smile. But Our Treat will be...when we get to look on that smile and face once again, in Heaven!! :) We know that loving young man is there!! Clif says, "Kudos" to his parents! Clif came back from the Iraqi Freedom War, it is hard for him to talk about it, and like all soldiers, he is in not untouched by all that he had to do, or see. Thank God-Time Helps Them. He will never be the same, but prayerfully a better man for all of this. I am so Proud of All of Young People whom Lay their lives on the line for FREEDOM...even today, 2 years later. Had the pleasure of meeting Trevors Dad in Meijers one day. He interupted a conversation, about the way they were abusing the funding for our soldiers returning for vet treatment. He helped me to clarify the problem to a confused man, whom believed the lies on the tv program. I hugged Mr. Blumberg, and explained that I was a military mom of a young man that knew his son growing up. He gave me his personal cell no. to give to my son, so he could call and have closure for Trevor. Thanks ever so much! Gods Richest Blessings to your Whole extended Family. Mrs. Valerie Brown"
Valerie Brown of Plymouth,MI U.S.A.

"I went to Salem High School with Trevor, we graduated the same year. We were friends with a lot of the same people, but didn't know each other well. He was a good guy, I was shocked when I saw his name in the paper. He'll be missed."
Fred Klein of Sarasota, FL / Plymouth,MI

"I served with Trevor in the 506th, and he was a good man. I have a few pics if the family would like them.

John West of napa, ca USA

"I never had the honor of meeting or knowing Sgt. Trevor, however I knew his father, when we were just kids. Our parents were friends and I guess that made us friends. I long ago lost touch with Terry (Trevor's father) and was greatly saddened when I learned that his son was killed in action. As a four generation military serving member and a Vietnam Vet., I know well, the meaning of loss of loved ones and friends and have such empathy for the family, as I think I would never recover, from the loss of either of my sons. My familiesí deepest condolences go out to Trevorís family and can only hope that his honor and commitment bring comfort to a family tragedy."

"Blumberg Family -
I was saddened to hear of your loss; I remember not only Trevorís zeal for life but his uncompromising desire to serve his country. In school and at home, Trevor encapsulated integrity, dependability and honor. I thank him for his noble sacrifice on all of our behalf; I shall remember him as I proceed each day under the liberties and freedoms that he and his fellow soldiers have secured for us all. My God bless your family during this trial, and reassure each of you that it was because of the love that Trevor held for you that he made such a honorable sacrifice."
Matthew Shear of Salt Lake City, Utah

"TO THE FAMILY OF SGT BLUMBERG, I found out a couple of days ago that he died while just browsing the web. Trevor was my last roomate I had in the Army and I served with him in Korea. Like SPC Perez, we took a liking to this young soldier because he was Airborne but more importantly a great kid, a real funny kid too. The strange thing is I just found a picture of him a couple days before I found out he died. I remember when I left Korea I accidentally took one of his boots. I still have that boot and I will keep it to remember how this brave soldier died while protecting my freedom. Again, your son was just a great man."
Tom Mellor of Boston,MA

"Though I never met Sgt. Blumberg, I am deeply saddened by his loss. I am a former Red Devil, I served with Bravo company from 98-02. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Sgt. Blumberg"

"Its hard to believe a year has passed, theres hardly a day that goes by where i dont think of blum or the things we did together.I carry him with me every day on my wrist and when people ask me what it is i tell them about the guy i am proud to have called a brother. To Mr. and Mrs. Blumberg I am glad i got to meet you and Blums sister, after that it wasnt hard to see why he turned out to be such a good person. God bless you bro, till we meet again"

"I purchased a Heroes Bracelet which has Trevor's name engraved on it, and I am proud to wear it for his service in this war. I also am proud to wear the bracelt in honor of his life that he has utimatley given, so unselfishly, for our freedom."
Candy Kubczak of Milwaukee, WI USA

"To the parents of Trevor Blumberg: my left wrist is adorned with a black bracelet bearing the name of your son. I didn't know him, but the younger of my two sons is named Trevor. He will be 4 years old on February 11, 2005. As he grows older, he will know of your son - how he died and why. Perhaps my precious Trevor will some day want to start wearing the bracelet himself, in solemn and respectful remembrance of your precious Trevor. Our paths will probably never cross, but I wanted you to know that there is at least one person in this country who talks to his two boys with reverence about your beloved son. May God bless you."
Thomas R. Turnquist of Englewood, Colorado

"To the family of Trevor, I was just scrolling through the names of all our fallen and I found Trevor's name. I went to high school with him and I didn't even know anything happened to him, what a shock. I am from Canton, but we're stationed in Virginia Beach, VA. I am so sorry, I will pray for you everyday. My husband is deployed right now so I know what it is like to wonder in the worst way...I don't know what to say but I will pray for him and for your family. I know this does not ever get easier. My thoughts are with you."
Nicole Zsuzsics of Canton, MI/Chesapeake, va

"I was passing through and reading the names when I found your Trevor. My heart went out to him because I noticed he was from Canton - a neighbor. Until then, all the names were from far away, but reading of your loss has brought it all home. What is remembered, lives. I will remember your loved one."
Dawn of Ypsilanti, MI

"I went to Airborne school with Trevor, then flew to Korea with him. I remeber we got stuck in Japan because of snow, then Seoul for 5 days, he did not like his room mate at the hotel, so he crashed on my couch for the week. We had a great time and I got to know him well. We were both so nervous about going to our first unit. We then were paired up at 2ID reception for a few more days. He was assigned to 1/506 and I went to 1/503. He used to come down to Camp Casey to relax and would always call me to go out. Your son was a great man and I am heart broken about your loss.
I have some pictures of us together in Japan and Korea, if you would like them please email me jgalvan123@yahoo.com

Remember your son had many friends because he was such a kind person. I am sure God and Trevor are looking over you now."
SGT John N. Galvan of Argyle Tx

"i served wtih trevor in Korea and I knew him pretty well. I am a fellow paratrooper and I always told him the 82nd was the place to be. I am very sorry to hear of his death. It brought me to tears to know that he would not be able to fulfill his dreams. He seemed like a little brother because he was new to the army and was very eager to learn."

I had to know more, so I was able to research,I even saw his name when they dedicated the WW 2 Memorial in Washington DC on Memorial day this year. When they read all the names of the men and women killed in action. I will we sending a donation to St Michaels Church in Trevors name, My prayers have been with you as I thought of all the firsts this year you had to have without Trevor. But now that it is his 1st anniversary in Heaven on Tuesday I couldn't not write. May God bless you and your special Hero."

"Trevor was one of the first guys I met when I was transferred to Ft. Bragg. A 24 hr. shift with him helped me to really get to know him as a very honest and good hearted man. He really helped me see my new home at the 82d as it really is. A group of brothers. You are and will be greatly missed, Trevor."
