GOOD NEWS Vietnam Vets Reunite After 38-Year Search
Two Navy shipmates and Vietnam War veterans have been reunited after a 38-year search.
Rick Mueller and Joe Martinez served together in 1971 aboard the U.S.S. White Plains.
“They called us M&M – Martinez and Mueller,” Martinez said.
Mueller tried to reach out to Martinez in 1976 at a Denver gas station, calling numbers in the phonebook, but was unsuccessful.
Then, recently, Mueller received a letter from Martinez, which said, “I have been trying to reach you. You were my best friend.”
The two finally got to see each other in person this weekend.
