Pictures would help.

I'd guess 2nd Armored Division for the unit patch..



M-26 Pershing is a guess at the tank.



M26 Pershing

It would depend on what his Militery Occupational Specialty was, I have two uncles who were in the Navy but spent a lot of time in Vietnam on River Boat Patrol, only one was an actual SEAL Team member. The Marine Corps has and does use Navy Corpsmen in combat environments all of the time, this was true in Vietnam as well as today. Either of these could be in close proximity to Artillary at some point.

The U.S. Marines operate a multitude of field artillery and are a component of the U.S.N.

Perhaps some connection there?

If you want to upload the pictures, start an account with a site such as Flickr, or photobucket, upload the pictures there. The upload site should then give you a URL (Universal Resource Locator - the page 'address') that you can then use to link to from these forums.

If you notice most American military have a star (apentagram) with a cirlce around it, so do sherif and police badges, in wicca this is a sign of protection magic.
