Thank you David, thank you Ruth, and thank you Mr. Orville A. Bierkle. This is an amazing story and it has kept me wattery eyed and up until 4:30am and was worth every second.

My grandfather, Elgie Bishop, also served in Korea and in my safe is his Iver Johnson snub nose that he carried in his pocket during the war. I am very proud to have his revolver and I think it's obvious the right man ended up with Mr. Orville A. Bierkle's S&W. Thank you all again and here's to all of our veterans and our servicemen who are on our soil and abroad keeping us safe and free.
