US veteran reunited with Italian siblings he saved during World War II (includes video story)

Martin Adler, a 97-year-old World War II veteran, spent years fighting Nazis in Italy as a teenager during the war.

He shared the story of a picture he took with a couple of babies he saved from an attack while searching for enemy soldiers in 1944.

Seventy-six years later, using the power of social media, Adler’s family tracked down the three children — now adults — and reunited with Adler in an airport. Bruno, Mafalda and Giuliana Naldi hugged Adler, who long ago saved their lives.
