Bennie Howard never expected to be reunited with the military tags he wore during WWII. After dropping them on a sandy beach in Italy, he thought they were gone forever. Turns out, he was wrong.
Italian stranger Jury Galli knew instantly he stumbled upon something valuable after his metal detector made an alarming noise. After scurrying through the grains of sand and dirt, the 19-year-old pulled a silver chain out of the dust. Inscribed on the attached military tags was the name, ‘Bennie Howard Jr.’
