I am Hans Senden, born and raised in the South of Limburg, close to Margraten.

I was interested in World War II and particular in my neighbourhood for a long time. But since 2016 I have adopted the grave of Privat Howard B (Benedict) Hicks on the American War Cemetery in Margraten, The Netherlands.

If you have additional information about Howard B Hicks or the 279th Engineering Combat Battalion, please contact me at info@hanssenden.nl
