Buford, Wyoming is a small place for sure, but so is the world.
A remote, unincorporated area along the busy Interstate 80 that advertised itself as the smallest town in the United States, Buford was sold at auction for $900,000 on Thursday to an unidentified man from Vietnam.
It's owner for the last 20 years, Don Sammons (seen here), served with the US Army as a radio operator in 1968-69 (in the Vietnam war).
After meeting the buyer, an emotional Sammons said it was hard for him to grasp the irony of the situation.
"I think it's funny how things come full circle," he said.
