Memories Come Back for a WWII Veteran Reunited with a M1 Garand Rifle

This World War II Veteran sure does remember his issued M1 Garand Rifle.

When this soldier handles a M1 Garand Rifle, the memories flood back. Take a moment to watch this touching video of a decorated World War II Veteran being reunited with a familiar rifle.

Youtuber Igneousedjr shared quite an emotional video of his great-grandfather, the recipient of the Purple Heart, Bronze Star and Combat Infantry Badge, among other decorations.

This tough World War II Veteran was wounded August 14th of 1944 in Dinard, France. That was the last time he handled an M1 Garand Rifle. That was until 72 years later, when this brave soldier’s great grandson brought a M1 Garand Rifle to show to him.

Every American should watch this heartfelt footage of a seasoned soldier meeting up with a vintage rifle from a past war. Thank you for your service, sir.
