|2nd Lt. Nolan George Hikel, Far Left; Others Unidentified|
When I searched N.G. Hikel on Ancestry.com I discovered that according to U.S. Veteran's Gravesites, ca 1775-2006, Nolan G. Hikel was a colonel in the United States Army, that he served in World War II and in Korea, and that he is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. You can see a photo of his grave, thanks to a Find A Grave photographer, here. I also found his photo in University of New Hampshire yearbook photos which are also available on Ancestry. The image of the man in the yearbook photos confirms that the young officer on the far left in the photo above is Nolan George Hikel. He is also the officer on the far right in the photograph below.
I'm glad to have discovered the identity of at least one man in my father's CCC photos! If you are related to Nolan George Hikel and can tell me about his experience with Company 1181 of the CCCs in Campton and Thornton, NH I'd love to hear from you!
