Veteran Gary Gezel, 94, US Army's 168th Infantry, 34th Division, met his future wife, Dorothy, a cook in the Royal Air Force, while aboard a train in England during World War II.  After proposing to her, he took a German parachute that he found during the war, sent it to her, and she made it into her wedding dress.  Now a widower, he keeps the dress (held in hand) and their wartime medals in the same Pella house the couple moved into after the war.
