So, back to your original statement Russ, yeah, I agree this qualifies as a discovery, but like so many other spectacular VAMs, it just leaves me wondering... How the hell did this ever get out of the mint undetected?!?! :lol:

Well I had my daughter and her husband and my grand kids over Friday thought Sunday. She got to meet her 11 cousins, as well as her great grandfather and even got to have a video call with her 1/2 brother over in the Sand Box. All when extremely well. as she put it " cant believe everyone just accepts us into the family as if I have been around from the start.

my response to her comment: that's the way families are supposed to be. it wasn't your fault that you were left out for so long. everyone is just glad that you were "found."

Awesome! Did I interpret correctly that her kids have a living great-great-grandfather?

I bet the harmony was a bit of a relief. Congrats Russ, on everything. What a whirlwind of fate.

John, YES the kids have a living , dead , living Grandfather. My father has been legally pronounced dead back in 1991 and came back when they found a pulse while putting him in the fridge. He also was UN Officially Shot twice once in N Korea in 1959 and once in Vietnam in 1961 and was in the first class of SEAL's! He was also not an official POW as we traded for him back before 45 days in 1962

OK, so if it's your father, then it's your grandchildren's great-grandfather, not your daughter's. I assume you have no living grandparents.
