A Tough But Fair Officer

Robert Hoy was my tactical officer at OCS in 1968 at Ft. Belvoir. He was firm, demanding, tough but fair and honorable. He demanded the best of us and we respected him. His loss nearly 50 years ago is still mourned by his men.

When we were young

We called him "Coolidge" as teenagers because he was so incredibly cool. He was the leader of a wide group of kids living in South Arlington, VA in an area that ranged from the River House apartments to Fort Scott Park and from Jefferson Davis Hwy. to Ridge Road. We looked to his good humor, grace and leadership as we tried to make our way in life. He helped more than a few of us to survive and kept a few of us out of juvenile detention.

Bob Hoy: A Leader and an Inspiration to Excel

Capt. Hoy was one of my TAC Officers at the Engineer OCS Regiment (Ft. Belvoir, VA). I was in Golf Company 512-G-1 which graduated on Aug. 2, 1968. He epitomized toughness, fairness and thoughtfulness, always challenging me and my fellow candidates. I remember him running like the wind, urging my platoon forward in formation at his blistering pace. He brought out the best in us! When we turned 'Red' in our last month of the six month course, he and his fellow TAC Officers lightened up a bit on us, and we got to know them over a few beers. He was a great guy. I was shocked to read about his awful fate in Vietnam after only 24 days in country; such a loss for family, friends and country. I survived a relatively peaceful Vietnam tour as a MACV engineer advisor. I thank God every day for that, and think of Bob Hoy every day.
