Soldier gets his bag back

Thursday, January 10, 2013

World War II vet William Kadar now has his G-I duffel bag back.

He hasn't seen the Army-issued gear in nearly seven decades.

It went missing before he was captured by the Germans in late 1944.

The bag was discovered by a French teenager in his grandfather's house.

Kadar's name and Army serial number are still stenciled on the bag.

The 16-year-old used the info to track down the Indiana veteran.

Kadar's granddaughter tells the Post-Tribune they soon hope to have an online chat with the French teen.
