I acquired a dress jacket with the name Hammer written in the pocket. In the collar is a stamp H5610. I looked through the names on this site and concluded that Ronald Hammer was who this jacket belonged to. I just wondered if I am correct? Is there anyone that may know the family? It's a long shot but WTH.

Hello, Heinz,

You have not mentioned it, but evidently the
jacket has a 12th Armored Patch on the shoulder. Were there any other items attached to the jacket?

I guess that the little
tag in the collar is how you guessed the
identity of Ronald Hammer from the 56th
Armored Infantry Battalion. (The HQ Company
may be an error, it was used to hold a place
for the correct company when it became known).

I suggest you contact Ed Pierce, the Unit Representative to the Hellcat News. Ed is
a veteran and maybe he knew Ronald Hammer.

Yours truly, Mike W.

You are correct, only the shoulder patch on the jacket.

All he could tell me is he was from Minot ND. I picked this up in NC.
