Father and 44-year-old son meet for the first time

- Paul Reis is 44 years old. He was born in Vietnam and left at an orphanage.

At just nine months, he was adopted by an American military family.

In Palm Bay, Florida, he was surrounded by a loving family. Shortly after high school he enlisted in the Army, later serving in the first Gulf War.

While Paul has walked across deserts of Iraq, meeting people from all corners of the Earth, there's one face he's never had the chance to see. One person he's never had the chance to touch.

On Thursday, he met his father, Larry Morrison, for the first time.
