Korean War veterans reunite after 63 years

Childhood friends Ted Erceg and Joe Pupillo grew up a block apart in the Kirk Yard neighborhood of Gary, Indiana. The two joined the armed forces during the Korean War and even shared a chance encounter as their battalions headed toward Wonsan on Oct. 20, 1950.But, since that day in Korea, Erceg and Pupillo didn't know what happened to the other. The Times coordinated the reunion between the Korean War vets in early November 2013; the first time the two had seen each other in more than 63 years.
