FULTON, Mo. -

Two brothers reunite Monday after being separated more than a half century ago.

It was the first time the two had seen each other since adoption broke them apart as children in Germany. Robert Olson now lives in Fulton. His brother, Steve Radliff, lives in San Antonio.

Originally known as the Riegelmann brothers, they admit living very similar lives despite being separated for so long. On more than one occasion, the two actually could have crossed paths, specifically in their days serving in the Vietnam War.

The two met up early Monday morning at the airport and said it's as if time had never passed.
