Harry B. Hambleton III – First Lieutenant, United States Army

Date Icon Publish Date

Bobby Hambleton was a true citizen soldier. He loved his family, his new wife and Wisconsin, and looked forward to returning to them when his time in Vietnam was done.

He was a combat engineer officer – executive officer of C Company, 8th Engineer Battalion, 1st Air Cavalry Division – serving at LZ Evans, north of Hue, when struck down by a rocket attack on our company headquarters on September 8, 1968. I was a few feet away from Bobby at the time.

I was proud to be his friend. I will always remember him.
