22, of Canton, Mich.; assigned to 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.; killed Sept. 14 in Fallujah when two improvised explosive devices struck his vehicle while he was on patrol.

Sgt. Trevor A. Blumberg always gave 100 percent in everything he did, whether it was playing football or hitting the books or serving his country.

“He never complained if you gave him an extra task,” said Gary Brokas, his high school marketing teacher. “He would never, ever say ‘It’s somebody else’s job,’ or ‘I’m busy.’ ”

Blumberg, 22, of Canton, Mich., was killed Sept. 14 by a roadside bomb in Fallujah, Iraq. He was a paratrooper stationed at Fort Bragg.

Blumberg was small for an offensive lineman on his high school football team, standing about 5-foot-7 and weighing about 165 pounds. Still, he worked harder than anyone else on the team, said Bob Cummings, the team’s offensive coordinator. “He pushed other players on the field to do their best,” Cummings said.

Blumberg was so well thought of by his fellow soldiers that his death broke their morale, said Staff Sgt. Kyle Foster. “He always smiled, always carried on,” Foster said.
