John Nordeen and Kay Lee served in the same Army platoon during the Vietnam War.
Nordeen and Lee had very different personalities, but in the life-or-death setting of war, the two bonded. Nordeen, a soldier from Seattle, was one of the first people that Lee, a combat medic from San Francisco, talked to.

In 2015, after a years-long search by Nordeen, the veterans finally reconnected.
