WWII veteran reunited with duffel

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. — A World War II veteran has been reunited with his Army-issued duffel bag nearly seven decades after it went missing.

William Kadar, 92, opened a carefully wrapped package Tuesday at his home and found his green duffel bag inside. He last saw it in November 1944, a month before he was captured by the Germans.

A letter included in the package said the bag was being returned by a 16-year-old French boy who found it in his grandfather’s house.
