He found a baby on the road, then decades later the veteran was shocked again

The tree-lined hills and valleys beckoned the young Army private as his ’35 black Chevy hugged the narrow road, a hairpin curve almost upon him. Basic US Army training was behind and the war just ahead, his 3-day leave wedged in between for saying good-byes. But before the fading autumn sun could dim the burnished foliage, this 18-year old would be called to serve in a way he couldn’t have imagined.
