Re: NBC's David Bloom Dies In Iraq

David Bloom, who really seems to have made a big impression with his reporting from Iraq for NBC, died of a pulmonary embolism early today. The cause of death wasn't due to combat. He would have been 40 next month.

David is survived by a wife, Melanie, and three daughters.

This is shocking news. He really did a good job with his reporting, and was featured a lot on NBC and MSNBC.

to David Bloom's family.

I didn't really know who he was but my mom has been talking about him and crying all day over it. It's very sad.

It is rare to have good reporters out there right now, but he was one of them.

With MSNBC's coverage of the anniversary in Iraq they've been showing a lot of David Bloom in Iraq...his loss is still being felt.

I really don't have much to say...I just wanted to bring this up again, and see how people feel 4 years later.

Very sad thing to remember

I got Bob Woodruff's book, I haven't started it yet. But I have seen him on several shows and I can't believe he is still alive, I had no idea it was that bad. They literally cut his head to let his brain swell out of it

Also David's widow is still doing work on behalf of DVT awareness, now they are talking about DVT risk for office workers. So that is so important. And the Woodruffs are doing that for TBI and for wounded vets-that special he did a few weeks back was very good.
