US Marine Veterans Reunite to Recreate a Photo They Took 50 Years Ago

Fellow servicemen came together for the first time since 1966.

US Marine Corps veterans — Bob Falk, Dennis Puleo, Tom Hanks, and Bob DeVenezia — met again after 50 years to recreate a photo that they took shortly before being dispatched to Vietnam in 1966, Mashable writes.

The men say they were all sent to different units along the way: all contact was lost, and after they came home, neither of them had any idea whether the others were alive: “We just broke up, — DeVenezia said. — Life is funny like that.”

The fellow servicemen found each other only in 2011, with the help of the Internet. And it was only now that all four of them managed to meet: “Mission accomplished,” — the veterans say.
