WWII soldier's duffel bag returned 7 decades later
MERRILLVILLE, Indiana (AP) - A US man who served in France during World War II has been reunited with his Army duffel bag nearly seven decades after it went missing.
William Kadar opened a carefully wrapped package on Tuesday to find the bag, still stenciled with his name and serial number.
The 92-year-old Kadar tells the Post-Tribune in Indiana that he last saw the bag in November 1944, a month before he was captured by the Germans.
His granddaughter says a 16-year-old French boy found the bag in his grandfather's house and tracked Kadar down. Arleen Haas says her family hopes to speak to the boy through Skype soon.
