New York Woman Buys Fallen WWII Soldier's Medal At Antique Shop, Returns It To Family

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Corrado Piccoli's sisters believed one of their other siblings had his Purple Heart. So it was a shock when a Vermont Army National Guard officer showed up at Mary Piccoli's door one day, telling her he had the medal, awarded posthumously after her brother was killed in action during World War II.

"You better sit down. I have a story to tell you," Adeline Rockko was told when her sister called earlier this year with word of Capt. Zachariah Fike's discovery. "We had no idea it was even missing."


READ ON... :D
