NEWARK, N.J. (KMOV.com) Corporal Willie Wilkins thought his dog tags were gone forever after he lost them in France during World War II.
Anne-Marie Crespo, however, was determined to rewrite the ending to this story. Crespo found the dog tags near her olive tree in 2001. Now, after a decade of research, Corporal Wilkins has his dog tags back.
Check out the video to see the special ceremony held for the corporal that also happened to mark the 68th anniversary of V-E Day.
