For Valentine’s Day, a Transatlantic love story

Need a Valentine’s Day pick-me-up? How about a real love story amidst all the saccharine candy hearts?

Read this story about two World War II veterans who found each other and fell in love during the war.

Though many celebrate this holiday as “Singles Awareness Day,” I’m happy to think of William and Joyce Hastings–who recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary.

Their friends contacted the American Legion to surprise them with a story. It was fun to write and research in cognito, and their friends were a hoot. Here’s to 70 more years of happiness and companionship.
