Sibling sailors reunite after 37 years



She last saw him when he was six and she was 14. She had no idea they both had joined the Navy.

“He’s been right under my nose all along. And I’ve looked for him forever,” says Cmdr. Cindy Murray, 51. “We’ve had all this time we could have been together.”

Chief Aviation Ordnanceman Robert Williamson, 44, arms aircraft 300 miles away from where his long-lost sister is based as a nurse. The two siblings have the same father but different mothers. When Williamson’s family moved, they lost touch, U-T San Diego reports.

They reunited at San Diego Naval Medical Center on Friday, a couple of months after Murray was told by their dad that her brother was in the Navy, too.

“It’s indescribable,” Williamson says. “Never in a million years did I think I’d be standing here.”

“It’s just so emotional. It’s the greatest thing,” Murray says.
