BAKER, LA (WAFB) -
An odd find at the Department of Motor Vehicles in Baker, LA. A woman and her sister were there renewing a drivers license when on their way out, they found a photo on the floor, face down.
"They're not forgotten. And I
don't want him forgotten," said Patty Goudeau.
Goudeau is talking about this
man. She found his photo in the parking lot of the baker DMV while she was
running an errand October 5. Goudeau has no idea who the man is and the only
marking on the picture was the word "Grady". So what would *you
do? She posted it on Facebook.
"As I was looking at it, I
thought about it," said Goudeau. "These men have served for our country. It's
only the right thing to do."
We took a copy of the picture to
the U.S.S. Kidd downtown. Museum staff compared the uniform in the photo to
those in their displays and believe he probably served in either World War II
or the Korean war.
"Some folks have managed to, in
tracking down this stuff and trying to find the family, whether they succeed or
fail they've gotten a better appreciation of the people in the picture and the
service they've done for the country," said Tim Nessmith with the U.S.S. Kidd.
Nessmith says he is happy Goudeau
had the picture posted on the internet. He says their museum is filled with
stories about veterans: stories they only discovered after family and friends
of the veterans saw the pictures and contacted them.
"This picture could generate a
huge story that people may have forgotten. It may just be stuck in one person's
mind, and then it just brings them that much more to life," said Nessmith.
