Student finds Thalhimer’s World War II jacket at Richmond outlet store

RICHMOND, Va. -- If you travel about anywhere in Richmond, you’re bound to see the name Thalhimer, but a Chesterfield mother was surprised to see that name at a military store.

Jill King took her son Max to Hull Street Outlet -- a military surplus superstore -- to find a jacket for a school project.

They found one that fit, but once they got it home, they were amazed to see Morton Thalhimer's name on the collar.

Jill and Max contacted Mr. Thalhimer through a third-party and they all met up Sunday.

Thalhimer told Max he wore that jacket in World War II and then presented him with some other military memorabilia.

When asked if he had been looking for the jacket, Thalhimer joked that his wife must have made room for one of her dresses.
