But how did they find them? The letters that is. I didn't see much on how they were found. Unless I missed something.

If my son were an Afghan vet I'd tell him to start treating a wider variety of canines. I've heard of specialty medicine but that's ridiculous.

When they mention 'V-mail' being photocopies. How do they mean photocopy? The photocopier wasn't invented until many years later. I wonder if they literally mean someone took a photograph of the letter, had it printed and that was what was mailed out. I'm not sure.

The veteran doesn't look like he should be eating at In&Out but maybe he got it protein style?

It is nice that they got some of the letters back, but if they meant that much to him then he probably should not have kept them in a shed.

You didn't miss anything. Article fails to go there at all. Too bad, because that would be interesting to know. I mean the love story was sweet and all, but cmon, tell us about the missing trunk and letters, please.

The sappy tag must have lost in a battle with the hero tag. Heroically sappy.

The letters were photographed & the film developed. The negatives were shipped back, the letters printed and delivered.

These people are in their eighties. Even if they have the energy to celebrate with an in-and-out, is it medically advisable?

What Marian Michaels might look like.

Better than Marion Morrison.

I lived in Hemet, CA for a while. Retiree community mostly.

Farking fast food joint and greasy spoon on every block. Quite common to hear an ambulance go by followed by someone saying, "Wonder if I know anyone in there."

And the local Hometown Buffet, with its elderly fat people shuffling to the fried chicken and pudding, scarred me for life.

I would have gone with Cool, personally.

And Motzeltov for 70 years. Not many get that far.

If I make it to my 80s, I will eat all the crap I didn't eat when was young and trying to make it to my 80s.

Who would have imagined how many James F. Ryans were in the service, eh?
