He was also captured and did time as a POW. Now, after escaping a cage in Vietnam 40 years ago, the country he laid down his life for is throwing him back in a cage—over a decades-old gun.
At a gun show 40 years ago, Pick bought the rare M-14 rifle, similar to the one he used in Vietnam while he served in the Army. He put this rifle in a case, along with 14 other extremely rare guns and proudly displayed them in his Texas home for four decades.
"This gun was very rare at that time it was rare to see one so he instantly had a connection to it," said Pick's attorney Ryne Sandel. "Over the course of his life he and his wife and collected about 14 weapons, many of them were collectors items."
