These Vietnam War veterans have been on a mission together for 38 years, and just recently, they were finally able to accomplish it.
The two – Rick Mueller and Joe Martinez – were Navy shipmates, and Fox News reports (above) that they served together in 1971 on the U.S.S. White Plains. After the war ended, they lost touch and have been looking for each other ever since.
Their search dates back before the internet, and they spent many phone calls going through names in local phone books calling everyone with the same name.
They couldn’t be happier to have finally found each other again. What a wonderful story!
