I was a supply specialist in B Co 122nd MSB and was a good friend to CPL Mobley who was killed during the war. I want him to know that I've missed him everyday since he's death and I think of his parents often because of our last conversation of them before we crossed into Iraq. We had talked about him ETSing a couple days before and how he's parents were both wanting him to come stay with them when he got back home and of the jobs they had lined up for him. I remember my commander and squad leader coming to the fox hole I was filling in to tell me the awful news of death. Knowing how close we were they still gave me his belongings to clean off to prepare to send home to his parents. I remember those moments as if they just happened and I wanted him to know that I think of him, I miss him and hope one day I'll see his smiling face. He was a very good friend to me.

I believe my Great Uncle Walter H Hicks was with the 3rd Armored Division. Is there anyway I can find out if he was in this unit? Any information would be helpful. My aunt remembers him telling her he was at the Battle of the Bulge and Normandy.
Thank you.
