Sometimes people post photos on Reddit and then...crickets. But recently, Derek Schwendeman of Newark, DE, posted a photo of his grandfather right before soldier was deployed to Korea in 1950. It's safe to say that Derek didn't expect THIS reaction.
The photo got millions of views and people went wild in the comments. ("What a hunk!" seemed to be the universal sentiment!)
But the story didn't end there. Derek's grandfather, Thomas Schwendeman, is still alive--and thriving at 86. Not only that, he's been happily married to the same woman for 65 years (yes, you read that right!). Here's a photo of Thomas and wife Fleecie alongside his grandson at Derek's wedding.
The couple met while they were both out bowling--and married while Thomas was in basic training. Today, Fleecie is getting a kick out of her husband's notoriety. "My grandmother says since they married young, he didn't have much of a chance to 'sow his wild oats.' She told me that he has 'women fussing over him all of the time, but she got him first,'" the grandson told People.com.
