Image-1.287511∩tion=Stacks of photos and letters detailing the youth of Army Pfc. Pierre Mathieu Van Wissem are stacked on the table of retired Marine Mark Simmons at his home in Sasebo, Japan. Simmons took possession of the letters and photos on behalf of Seikichi Tamanaha of Ginowan, Okinawa to try and track down Van Wissem, who died in 2003. Van Wissem asked Tamanaha to hold onto his belongings while he went to Vietnam almost 50 years ago but he never returned. Despite Van Wissem's death, Tamanaha returned the items to his children this month. Van Wissem is seen leaning back on his backpack with his eyes closed
