Private first class Robert F. Hoy loved the Marine Corps and all it stood for- he was the quintessential proud Marine. When i interviewed Bob, I asked him to share what being a Marine meant to him?

Bob replied, “To me, it means country, courage, honor, commitment – that’s what the Marines are based on – once a Marine, always a Marine. The Marines say there’s a right way, a wrong way, and the Marine Corps way .. And the Marine Corps way is right. They give those kids direction and roots”

Kiva, I would like to present this certificate to you as a special tribute to Bob, from Kent and I – for his courage, his honor, and his commitment to everything he did in life.

Susan McCray with husband Kent presents a certificate to Kiva Hoy in memory of her husband, Bob Hoy.

Commemorative Brick Program

Bob Hoy’s name is engraved on a brick lining the winding pathways to the rally points in Semper Fidelis Memorial Park.  The rally points will be places to reflect upon the sacrifices past and present Marines make to protect our Nation. The Park overlooks the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, VA.

The memorial bricks affirm for posterity Esprit de Corps with the men and women who risked their lives for the freedom we value. The National Museum of the Marine Corps preserve Corps history and heritage, and forever attests to the honor, courage, and commitment that embody America´s “first to fight.”
