    That is wonderful. You reunited a family.

    Kind of makes you wonder how many other servicemen's foot lockers got tossed... and weren't saved.

    Good on you, that's an amazing story and amazing return.

    That should be honorable mention worthy if there every was one, thanks for reuniting those priceless family history pieces with their rightful owner

    Thanks for the good words, everybody. It was super cool for me to "discover" who the guy was. Glad it was a happy ending for the family.
