Who We Are
Paul Kimbel was born in Louisville Kentucky and two years after graduating from high school enlisted into the U.S. Army in 1992, serving until 2000. Over his service he was attached to the elite 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and 10th Mountain Division. He trained on multiple bases, including Fort Drum, New York and Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
In the 1990s, Somalia was wracked with famine and fighting among warlords. In December 1992, President George H.W. Bush authorized the dispatch of U.S. troops to Somalia to assist with famine relief as part of the larger United Nations effort. “Operation Restore Hope” saw the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit MEUSOC assume the unified command in Mogadishu. Sergeant Kimbel along with other members of the 10th Mountain Division reinforced the Marine operation. He participated in convoys that delivered direct humanitarian support to the population until operations ceased with the infamous “Black Hawk Down” incident where 18 American troops were killed. Two years later Sergeant Kimbel was coordinating humanitarian aid convoys in Haiti, in response to massive flooding caused by Hurricane Gordon. In 1996 he was reassigned to become the aide to the Division Command Sergeant Major of the 101st Airborne Division where he completed Air Assault Training, Airborne, Air Assault, Anti- terrorist and Surveillance Schools.
After 8 years of service Sergeant Kimbel left the Army and took a job as a delivery technician serving long term healthcare facilities. Over the next 10 years he worked his way up from delivery technician, territory manager, regional manager, to Vice President of the Southeast.
Since 2011 he has served as the Vice President of Sales and Service for MESA and continues to serve his fellow veterans.
In 1990, Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussain invaded neighboring Kuwait. In response President Bush ordered Operations Desert Shield/Storm.
