Filipina at Amerikano na nagkakilala noong 1972, nagkita muli matapos ang 48 na taon sa tulong ng social media

A netizen shared her love story with an American serviceman she met in 1972 but became separated a year after he was deployed to another country.

In her Facebook post, Yolly Santiago-Sullenger shared a photo of her first meeting with Joe Sullinger, who was assigned to the Philippines at the time.

However, in 1973, they were forced to end their relationship after Joe was assigned to Japan.

Since then, Yolly has been clueless about what happened to the American serviceman who caught her heart because of the lack of communication medium at that time.

“Year 1972 yung lumang picture at 17years old palang ako Nyan tapos 21 years old naman si Joe. Na assigned sya sa Japan noong 1973 at doon ay nawalan kami ng contact sa isa’t isa, Wala pa nman cellphone noon,” she said.

Due to the help of social media, Yolly successfully reached Joe in 2020 and quickly decided to marry each other.

Yolly and Joe were now living happily in the Missouri, United States.

Their story quickly went viral on social media, and they were amazed by how destiny had reconnected them.
