Korean War veterans reunite after more than 60 years

Korean War Veterans Reunite After More Than 60 Years

Three veterans who hadn't seen each other in more than six decades met up in Bakersfield, Calif. for a heartwarming reunion.

KERO was there to witness it all: "The moment they saw one another was priceless."

The trio of Marines served together during the Korean War, working in communications. That was the last time they saw each other, more than 60 years ago.

Clarence Enneking lives in Minnesota, but was visiting his son Tim in San Diego. When Tim realized his father's war buddies both lived in California, he and his sister set about organizing the reunion.

KERO reported, "Clarence said he was thankful to his children for making this happen."

He told the station, "Not many people get a chance to see people like us after 60 years and still feel like we were back there!"

Enneking told KERO Marines never hug, so this was a very special occasion indeed.
