After 70 Years, a World War II Veteran Finally Reunited With His Long-Lost Love
After seven decades of separation, Norwood Thomas and Joyce Morris are acting like teenagers. The long-lost lovers, who fell for each other while Norwood was stationed in England during World War II, were reunited in Australia after their story became national news.
Norwood and Joyce first met in England, while Norwood was a soldier. "She had a smile that would melt you, and of course I was melted," Norwood said in a video for Air New Zealand, which orchestrated the reunion. But after the war, he was sent back to the United States; he sent her a letter asking her to come to be with him, but she misinterpreted it and thought he had found someone new. They moved on and married other people, and started families of their own. Joyce moved to Australia, and Norwood settled in Virginia. If they had stayed together, "I would have had a totally different life, and probalby a much happier one," Joyce said.
Seventy years later, Joyce, now divorced, asked her son to look up Norwood, and the two got in touch thanks to theVirginian-Pilotnewspaper. Their first Skype conversation went viral, and Norwood flew to Adelaide, Australia for a romantic reunion, just in time for Valentine's Day.
"Well, you're still vertical," Joyce joked. "Give me a squeeze," Norwood replied, and the two embraced for the first time in seven decades. "This is about the most wonderful thing that could have happened," Norwood told cameras after they had a chance to settle down. "Well, we're going to have a wonderful fortnight," Joyce added.
