Serviceman gets his wallet back, 40 yrs later

A worker found a wallet that was stolen from a serviceman 43 years ago in a Pittsburgh bus station.

Robert Gibson, who had been in the Air Force, got a call about the wallet Thursday from an Army captain in Pittsburgh.

"Before he could even say a word, I said, 'You found my wallet,"' said Gibson, 70, of Linwood, N.C. "How it got where (it was found) I don't know. I haven't taken a shower in a bus station since."

Gibson stopped in Pittsburgh while returning from serving almost a year and half in Germany as a staff sergeant repairing airplanes. He had decided to take a hot shower before boarding his bus to Clarksburg, W.Va., in 1962.

LeRoy Fillmore, an asbestos removal technician, found the wallet Wednesday in the former Greyhound station, which is being demolished.
"You will find some stuff, but nothing as interesting as this," Fillmore said.

Fillmore found it near some pipes he was inspecting and clearing of asbestos
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
