LTC Billy Hibbs Master Army Aviator departed on his last mission on December 29th, 2013.
Billy, as his fellow Army Aviators called him, was a respected comrade in arms and a friend to all that knew him. He will be remembered as a true leader, a man of integrity, a man of honor, and a man of valor.
Billy served two tours in Vietnam as an Army Aviator. The first tour was with the 184th Recon Airplane Company flying the O1G Birddog, and the second flying the OV 1 Mohawk reconnaissance aircraft. Billy was a charter member of the 184th RAC serving in that unit from 1966 thru 1967.
All those who served with Billy would attest to the fact that Army Aviation would not be the same today with out his contribution of experience and talent in the cockpit.
Billy, we will all miss you and you memory will never leave us.
