WWII Vet Finds Bracelet From Mom Lost 73 Years Ago

PHILADELPHIA (CBS)–A World War II veteran from Syracuse gets a call he never expected.

The person on the other end is a man who found a priceless keepsake.

Staff Sergeant John Hill lost a bracelet more than 70 years ago on a field near Normandy.

It was a gift from his mother. He thought he’d never see it again.

But Matthew Delamonte found that bracelet in February while walking through that field with a metal detector.

He used the serial number on the bracelet to track hill down 73 years later!
