WWII Vet Reunites With Wartime Girlfriend

This WWII Vet Is Reuniting With His Wartime Girlfriend — and We're a Mess

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and 93-year-old WWII vet Norwood Thomas is going to have the holiday of his life.

In 1944, the Virginia Beach, Virginia, resident met and began dating Joyce Morris, now 88 and living in Australia. He was 21; she was 17. He was sent to war, and due to miscommunication, the two lovebirds lost touch. Now, after more than 70 years of separation, Thomas wants to give Joyce "a little squeeze" in person.

Thanks to generous donations from readers who spotted the original story of their first Skype date and a free flight offer from Air New Zealand, Thomas will be doing just that. He and his caretaker son Steve are set to board a plane to Adelaide, Australia, next month.

Watch the video below of their first online encounter — it's ridiculously sweet. And definitely keep a few tissues handy!
