Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Extended military service strains relationships
22-year-old Wayne Whipple has served the military for four years. the U.S. Army sergeant was stationed in Washington D.C. and Korea. For the past 6 months Whipple has been stationed in Iraq. The multiple stations and his recent deployment to Iraq have strained his relationship with 19-year-old Jonee Winnick.
Winnick says as many times as she has had to say goodbye to whipple, its never easy. Still, Winnick says as hard as it may be, she values the long distance relationship.
Twenty year-old Ryan Hoefer’s deployment to Iraq in March last year was originally scheduled for six months. But he stayed nearly a year.
Hoefer says he was elated to talk to 19-year-old girlfriend Elizabeth Diblasio during their first phone conversation from iraq, three months after his deployment.
With few phone conversations possible, hoefer says he found comfort talking to the married soldiers.
