I found some things from this gentleman in a box of old letters and pictures kept my my grandmother, Betty Lou Hickey who was born and raised in Gary. I have a letter dated Oct 6 1949 and a picture dated November 1949 from Robert "Bob" Barbercheck. I only know for sure he was in the Navy between at least 1949 and 1951, and he was stationed at Sasebo Japan in 1949. Unfortunately that's all I could glean. Is this anyone's relative? What happened to Bob? The Navy doesn't have so many records available on Ancestry that are useful. I did find him in the 1940 census in Gary, and it told me that in 1935 the family was actually in Maywood Illinois (near Chicago).
