Families unite through WWII bayonet

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany – U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Scott Martin, 606th Air Control Squadron radio frequencies transmissions systems operator from Chico, Calif., and Marco Haas, from Boulaide, Luxembourg, share a moment together at the 606th ACS headquarters Oct. 4, 2012. Haas’ father, Alphonse Haas, found the bayonet in his parents’ home after U.S. troops used the house as an aid station in 1944. The bayonet was a Haas family heirloom until Marco began looking for the rightful owner of the weapon in 2001. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Nathanael Callon/Released)
