Alabama woman reunites soldier with lost journal

An Alabama woman has helped a Fort Benning soldier reclaim a writing journal he lost after being deployed to Afghanistan in 2003.

Kerri Clemons of Arab, Alabama, met Sgt. First Class Bryan Bailey at the National Infantry Museum in Columbus on Friday.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports Bailey was freshly deployed to Afghanistan 11 years ago when he decided to keep a journal.

Bailey later lost track of the book. But Clemons found it in a second-hand store in 2004 and began trying to locate Bryan.

Clemons recently contacted a friend at WAFF-TV in Huntsville and the station did a story. Several people contacted Bryan after seeing the piece, and he contacted Clemons.

Bryan thinks the journal got mixed up with other books that were shipped back after the deployment.
