    Sweet and heartwarming.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    In a poignant embrace, Vietnam War veteran Perron Leroy "Perry" Shinneman reunites with his wife Shirley upon his return home to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

    The image clearly shows that one of Perry’s legs is missing, with his crutch fallen to the airport tarmac. As a lance corporal in the U.S. Marines, in action against Viet Cong in April 1966, his limb was destroyed when stepping on an enemy booby trap seven miles south of DaNang.
