Recently acquired this grouping and wanted to share it on the forum. These items all belonged to Robert H_i_c_k_m_a_n and his son David. Robert served in the Marine Corps during WWII and was with K Co. 3rd Parachute Bn. On December 9th, 1943 he was WIA while fighting on Bougainville. His son was in the Marine Corps during Vietnam and was assigned to D Co 1st Bn, 3rd Marines. He was KIA on May 4th, 1967 in the Quang Nam Province as a result of small arms fire. This grouping contains Roberts and Davids patches, medals, uniforms, and misc items. Dont have everything pictured at the moment although Ill try and get Roberts uniforms and Davids dog tag posted on here by tomorrow.

Thanks for looking,

Noah
