A Vietnam veteran was utterly unaware that he had a daughter in the world for decades. However, the meeting with his adult daughter had a profound impact on his life. 78-year-old Gary Barnes, a Vietnam veteran living in California, said, “More important than anything in life there is family,” Barnes was asked to join the war in Vietnam, as were most young men at the time. He spent his time off in the Philippines, where he developed a romance with a native woman.
