Earlier this year, writer Abbi Jacobson became the serendipitous recipient of a love letter sent more than 70 years ago from a WWII soldier stationed in North Carolina. The mysterious correspondence, postmarked in 1944, was intended for his wife, Mrs. Joseph O. Matthews.
Touched by the love note, Jacobson and filmmaker Todd Bieber started a crowdsourcing project to help track down the rightful receiver.
The effort was quickly picked up by national news outlets including ABC News, The New York Post, and yours truly.
Now nearly seven months after the project was launched, the letter has been reunited with Matthews' family. Watch above for the truly remarkable story.
