  • A Great Friend and Fondy Remembered Classmate

    Posted on 12/10/17 - by Van Howell vanhowellart@gmail.com
    I knew him in 7th grade, I think his dad was stationed at Suffolk County AFB. Another classmate, Wayne Minardi, and I figured out a couple of years ago that Cliff was probably lost in the war, but still, confirmation hurts. He was friendly, funny and open, but reserved, cool and maybe a little remote, all at the same time. A troublemaker and a class clown who never lost his self-respect or the respect of others. He seemed about a foot taller than the rest of us and about ten years older too —maybe a hundred years wiser—what some might call an "old soul". No space left for stories, but other can share.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/19/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SGT Lawrence Clifford Bloom, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Memories of Cliff

    Having gone to High School and worked along side you and your dad, Al, at the Exeter Inn...I want others to know of your great sense of humor, winning smile and willingness to help others. You entered the service knowing full well that you would probably end up in Viet Nam but felt you had to go for all of us. I think of you often and someday the old "Inn" gang will be all together.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
