I knew Kimmey Hobbs

Before there was Kimmey Hobbs there was Kimmey and Hobbs: machine gunners on a WWII bomber and friends. Hobbs survived. Kimmey didn't. Hobbs named his son Kimmey. In early March 1968 one of C Troop's tracks hit a mine and I ran to help. I found Hobbs, the 3rd platoon medic, already there doing the job. What I didn't know was that he was on the track that had hit the buried bomb, was blown into the sky, and slammed into the ground and yet he was up and working. That was Kimmey Hobbs. He was C Troop's Senior Aid Man and on Track 2-6 on April 10 when it hit a mine, and we lost his life and four others. Michael Colicchio, who has posted here, was the only one on 2-6 to survive that one.

Now I Know

My grandparents (Brown) are buried by the Hobbs graves. When visiting their graves, I always noticed the bench with Kimmey's name on it and thought it was a nice remembrance to this person. I always wanted to know more about this person. Now I know more about Kimmey and how he gave his life for his country. I always prayed for him at his grave site. May he Rest in Peace.

Remembering My Friend

Kimmey, I remember you as funny, full of life and very smart. I don't have many days that go by that I don't remember you and Walter Mayer.

Went to the Vietnam Memorial on the Texas State Capitol grounds on Tuesday May 6, 2014. Was almost overcome with emotion thinking and talking about you two.

Visited with a friend today and found you and Walter on here today May 8, 2014.

We were in school together from the first grade until we graduated from Harlandale. So many great times. I share stories about you with my son-in-law, SFC Smtih, often.

Thank you for your service to our country. You paid the ultimate price so that your family, friends, classmates and countrymen could live in freedom.
