  • Tommy's my namesake

    Posted on 5/9/16 - by Tommy Stephens Tsteph89@gmail.com
    I'm 27 years old, my name's Tommy, my mother named me after Tommy Bryan Hosey, I have lived with his memory my whole life, I'm going to study and teach abroad in Vietnam next spring, and I plan to go to where he gave his life for our country. I want you to know that I admire this man so much, the stories of his youth inspire me, and he is not forgotten, I will always remember his sacrifice and carry his story onward to future generations.

    Dear PFC Tommy Bryan Hosey, 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

    TOMMY BRYAN HOSEY


    COMPANY E

    3rd BATTALION

    187th INFANTRY REGIMENT

    " RAKKASANS "

    101st AIRBORNE DIVISION

    " THE SCREAMING EAGLES "


    CITATION FOR POSTHUMOUS AWARD OF

    THE SILVER STAR


    The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal (Posthumously) to Tommy Bryan Hosey (US53671087), Private First Class, United States Army, for gallantry in action against an armed hostile force while serving with Company C, 2d Battalion, 39th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division. Private First Class Hosey distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 1 June 1968 while serving as a rifleman on a reconnaissance in force mission in Plain Reeds, Republic of Vietnam. Immediately after landing, the company came under intense automatic weapons fire from a battalion of Viet Cong in an adjacent enemy bunker complex. The Company commander and several squad leaders were wounded during the first few moments of contact. Completely disregarding his own safety, Private Hosey attempted to reorganize his squad for an assault on the enemy bunkers. Jumping up from his concealed position, Private Hosey aggressively charged the fortifications and although he received several wounds in the process, continued his assault. Private Hosey maintained contact with the enemy until he was wounded by hostile fire. His extraordinary heroism in close combat against Viet Cong forces was in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
