You were the first Blackhawk that I visited on my first trip to the Wall.
From a fellow Blackhawk medic,
Kimmey Dean Hobbs was the Medic on the Armored Personnel Carrier that I commanded on 10 April 1968. He was one of 5 killed in action on that day. For reasons known only to God, I survived. Since then, I have tried to "earn" my survival by honoring my fallen crewmates and veterans in general.
Kimmey Hobbs was a gentle, dedicated and talented Medic. He worked feverishly to save casualties from both sides of the fight; friendly or enemy. He was taken from us to soon.
Rest in Peace, Doc.
From a comrade-in-arms,
A Note from The Virtual WallSP4 Hobbs was with C Troop, 1/1 Cavalry, at the time of his death. The Virtual Wall can identify four men from C Troop, 1/1st Cavalry, who were killed in action by an explosive device on 10 April 1968:
