CINCINNATI -- Bob Doolan and Skeets Bonfield have a lot in common. 

Both men are 100 years old, and they both attended Holy Family School in their youth. Both
are World War II veterans. Both were held as prisoners of war in Germany, where Skeets was captured and Doolan's plane was shot down. 

But, strangely, they hadn't seen each other for 90 years, until Thursday. 

Watch their reunion in the video player above.
