Just about 50 year ago Marines Dennis Puleo, Tom Hanks, Bob DeVenezia and Bob Falk were trekking through the hot, miserable jungle, fighting for the United States in the Vietnam war. But just before they left for Vietnam, the inseparable friends took a photo with their beloved surfboard on a sandy beach in Florida. Now they’ve met to recreate that special moment, right before the chaos of war.
By the grace of God, all four men happened to be in Florida at the same time so they decided to take advantage of the rare occasion. They scrounged up a surfboard and some of the men even went as far to dress similarly as the first photo, and they headed back out onto the beach.
