A few months ago, a video went viral of a World War II war veteran reunites with his wartime girlfriend 70 years after they met.

In 1944, Norwood Thomas from Virginia  met and began dating Joyce Morris.

He was 21 at the time, and she was 17. They lost touch after he was sent to war and due to miscommunication, the two never reconnected.

Now at 93 years old, Thomas will fly to meet Morris in Australia, all thanks to generous donations from readers who saw the story of their first Skype date.

He and his caretaker son, Steve, will hop on a plane to Adelaide next month.

Take a look at the video that made it all happen, when they first spoke over Skype – thanks to their children!
