Military Service Notes

  • United States Army, Captain, World War I. "Bobbitt interrupted his career in October 1917 when after the onset of World War I he joined the army. He was assigned originally to the 90th Division but was transferred to a field artillery depot in South Carolina just before the division was sent to France, and consequently he did not see any actual combat duty. During his time in the artillery unit, Bobbitt was occasionally diverted to work as soldiers’ defense counsel. Bobbitt was discharged with the rank of captain in 1919." Presiding Officers of the Texas Legislature, 1846-2016, 2016.
