William Kadar, 92, of Merrillville, said he lost the bag in November 1944 while fighting in France, before he ended up in a German prisoner of war camp, and thought it was lost for good until his daughter, Arleen Haas, was contacted by a French teenager through a Texas military museum, WGN-TV, Chicago, reported Wednesday.

Haas said the boy told her the bag had been passed down to him from his grandfather. She said the teen was initially reluctant to part with an object he saw as part of his family history, but agreed to send it to Kadar when she promised to eventually return it to the teenager.

Haas received the bag in the mail last week and took it to her father Tuesday.

"Well, I finally got it!" Kadar said.
