Korean War Veteran Reunites With His Twin Children for the First Time in Over 40 Years

Allen Thomas is a US Veteran who served in the Army in Korea and Vietnam. While in Korea he married a Korean woman and they had twins. When he left Korea for re-assignment the twins were adopted without his permission.

He’s been searching for them for about 45 years. This summer he asked people on Facebook to help him. The post was shared over 1 Million times. 20/20 helped him locate the twins and they were reunited last month.

The program shows how the 45 year mystery was solved and includes their emotional reunion.

The program airs tonight, Friday December 11th, at 10pm Eastern and Pacific /9pm Central on ABC 20/20 with Elizabeth Vargas.

Tomorrow, December 12th, the program will be available HERE.
