Let us further remember those who bear the wounds of war and their families. Let us pray for those who are supposed to be the veteran's friend and there to help him. God Bless America and our military men, women, and veterans.

On March 29th 1945 MG Rose,the commander of the 3rd armored division, was killed in action during the Battle of Paderborn. On March30th I was able to experience an advance of a smaller unit, the task force Welborn, towards Paderborn.
Are there any records or details of this advance towards the hamlet of Busch. Did any veterans write about it? What about the official history of the division?
Sincerely, Gerhard Duesterhaus

Service: Desert Storm | Years: 1988-1991 | Unit: 503rd FSB | Company, Battery or Troop: Company A | Other: | Comment: Captain Joseph G. Kime was killed March 1991 when his Humvee (HMMWV) hit a mine on a main supply route (MSR) on March 13, 1991. He was buried with full military honors in Arlington National Cemetery (Section 60, Grave 7718).

His name is on a plaque with other veterans killed in action at War Memorial Park in Martinsville, West Virginia.
--------------------------------------
From the Herald-Mail or Hagerstown, Maryland:

Joseph Kime II, of Charles Town, W.Va., said his son loved being in the U.S. Army. He was executive officer of a tank battalion.

He grew up listening to his father's stories about his service in the U.S. Marines during the Korean War.

Gertrude Kime said she worried when he was sent over to the Persian Gulf and was glued to the television watching the war unfold.

"When President Bush said the war was over, my heart dropped," she said.

The war ended on Feb. 27, 1991. Joseph Kime II said his son and his son's commander flipped a coin to see who would lead a convoy back to Kuwait City on a supply run.

Joseph Kime III, 38, lost the coin toss and went back. His Humvee hit a land mine on March 11 and he died on March 13, leaving behind a wife and two children.

Thank you so much for having such a great site. Another site I visit often is U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs. It’s a great site to learn about benefits for veterans, spouses, and dependents. I’ve learned so much from U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs that I started teaching classes around town to veterans groups, teaching them how to gather the right information for benefits, how to get an increase in benefits, who they need to talk to in the VA, and I make sure they visit U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs (http://www.veteranprograms.com) to get free stuff.
