A Christmas card from 48 years ago reunites a vet and the little girl who wrote it!

November 30, 2018

48 years ago John Metzler was fighting in the Vietnam War when he recieved a Christmas card from a sixth grade student. He's a 71-year-old vet now but still holds on to that Christmas card. He recently asked his family to find the girl who wrote him the letter so he could thank her for it, but the family said they couldn't locate her. Turns out, they did and planned an entire surprise meeting for the two. The two finally met and Donna was just as emotional about it has Metzler was. He says that the card "means more today than when I got it".
