It Took Him 65-Years To Get Home

Jimmie Doyle joined the military in 1943. He came home the next year to see his new son.

On the last day of August 1944 his plane was shot down.

A son's undying love and devotion helped head a search that included diving into the Pacific Ocean to recover the remains of the aircraft, and that of his father.

That son was able to bring his father home and lay him to rest next to the woman he loved.

"He left here when he was 25, and he couldn't get home for 65 years, but now he gets to spend eternity next to the woman he loved. From here, everything is good."

Reading this beautiful account at the Star-Telegram.
