After Being Hidden In An Attic For 70 Years, A Family Treasure Is Returned To Its Owners.

If you live in an older house and you haven’t been up to the attic in a while, you might want to take a look around.

It seems like more often, people are finding amazing things up there; and while this latest story might not be the most lucrative find, it’s definitely full of sentimental value.

After finding an old suitcase in his attic full of WWII memorabilia —including old love letters between a deployed Navy sailor and his wife — a Maryland man decided to track down the original owner. So he took the suitcase to the local police station, where police were able to locate the daughter of the original owner.

World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although related conflicts began earlier. It involved the vast majority of the world’s nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.

It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of “total war”, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources.

Receiving the WWII memorabilia from the attic of her former home provides an opportunity for the daughter of the soldier and her children to get to know more about the war. It is more important for the man’s granddaughters as they are able to get a glimpse at a man they barely knew.
