Raymond S. HOBACK - 29th Division.
Bedford Boys Fallen - Raymond Samuel HOBACK never had a chance to reach 100 years old today. Instead, he sacrified his life for our freedom... Raymond may have made it out of his landing craft, but he never made it to shore. Others recall seeing his body in the water. Bedford also failed to make in on the beach. He was killed by an exploding 88mm shell. Their time in the battle could be measured in minutes... [American D-Day facebookRead more...

My father, Pvt. Howard J. Johnson served under Captain Fitch on D-Day and saw him killed on the beach. My father thought a lot of this brave man who while trying to rally his troops to move up stepped on a mine. He later took a direct hit from mortar. They were together many months in England.
