A friend met this man while flying out of North Carolina. She shared the following:

Had a great conversation with this stranger at the NC airport. He asked, “Are you from the Philippines” I said, Yes! He took his bag and grab a picture of him with a filipino soldier and asked me, “do you know him? I carry this with me all the time. I’ve been looking for him but I don’t know his name. He saved my life 60 years ago.”

It’s a long shot but if you recognize the man on the right in the picture, know anyone who served in the US Army from the Philippines or can just signal boost this message it would be appreciated. The man he saved wants to thank him.
