It had been 75 years since the tides of World War II suddenly separated two lovers.
In 1944 a young Kara Troy “KT” Robbins was 24 years old and the US Army had him stationed in her village for two months. During that short time, he fell in love with a local woman named Jeannine Ganaye. When KT had to suddenly leave to fight the Axis Powers he hoped to return but his journey brought him back to the US.
“I told her maybe I’ll come back and take you, but it did not happen like that.” KT told French reporters.
“When he left in the truck I cried, of course, I was very sad. I wish, after the war, he hadn’t returned to America.” Jeannine remarked.
They both went on to get married, but they always wondered if they would their paths would cross again.
With nothing but a picture to remember her by KT kept hope in his heart.
Weeks before he returned to France for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, KT met French journalists who were reporting on US veterans. When they heard about his war-time lover they helped to track her down.
“I always loved you. You never got out of my heart,” KT told Jeannine. Though she knows little English she understood him perfectly.
The emotional reunion only lasted a few hours and when it was time to part ways, they both were in tears.
“Jeannine, I love you girl.” KT exclaimed as they swore to meet again.
