Vetter used a parachute, from a food drop,
as clothing since his clothes had disintegrated,
and all he had to wear was a G-string.
After making contact with American troops and
receiving clothes, he kept the parachute.
At his request, his wife made a baptismal gown
from it. Each of the couple's children was
baptized in the gown. The color of the
ribbons was changed from blue to pink depending
on the baby's sex.
