Vietnam Vet Reunites With War Buddy He Thought Was Lost





He lost his friend at war almost half a century ago. Or at least, that's what veteran Rick Valenzuela, from Oregon, thought, MyFoxOrlando.com reported. Valenzuela served with friend and fellow U.S. Marine Gary Benson during Vietnam.

Both men were in the Fox Company in the U.S. Marine Corps. In 1969, Valenzuela believed that Benson died in a rocket attack, the site reported.

This turned out to be a very fortunate mistake.
