WHO IS CALVIN GIBBS?
Born in 1985 in Billings, MT, friends say all Calvin Gibbs ever wanted to do was become a soldier. As a freshman in high school, he played defensive end on the football team. Calvin was also an amateur body-builder and dabbled in MMA style fighting. At 6’4 and 220 pounds, friends remember him being “the strongest kid they ever played against.” Calvin completed a graduate equivalency degree in the fall of 2002 and had already enlisted in the military. Tall, clean cut, confident, and ready to serve, Calvin was often described as a “recruiting soldier” poster.
In 2008 Calvin proudly welcomed a son, Calvin Richard Gibbs Jr, into the world.
At the time of Calvin’s sentencing he was serving with Joint Base Lewis McCord’s 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division.
