Three brothers were reunited this weekend at Fort Knox, Kentucky, bringing together two families inextricably tied to the U.S. Army.

Raised in an Army household, Brian Jackson 53, and his younger brother Eric, 50, always knew that they had an older brother who had been given up for adoption when their father served a tour of duty in Germany, but they knew no other details. Their father didn't have much information either, as it wasn't until he went on another tour to Germany that he learned a past girlfriend had given birth and given their son up for adoption.

Growing up as an only child, Robert Edmonson II, 54, always knew he had been adopted in Germany. As an adult, he learned that his biological father's name was Edward Jackson and he was from Texas -- but that's all he knew.

I saw this on the news yesterday.  Good story!   :nod:
