A love story spanning some seven decades has come to a touching ending in Santa Barbara County, thanks to the help of a stranger some 6000 miles away.

Some World War Two dog tags lost in the South Pacific in the 1940’s were found, and returned to the man’s widow just before she died.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco talks with some family members, who say it’s a miracle that after 70 years of being missing, the dog tags turned up just before their loved one’s death.
