(KTNV) -- A suitcase full of lost love letters written during Word War II have found their way home to a North Carolina woman.
The suitcase of letters was found in a storage unit in Reno. A man gave the suitcase to a police officer at the VA Medical Center.
That officer opened some of the letters and discovered that they were love letters from a Major Lamont Haas to his wife Betty Lou.
Haas had left medical school to enlist in 1951. He was lost in a mid-air collision over France during the war.
The police officer tracked down Major Haas' brother living in Florida. But Haas had lost contact with his brother's family.
Eventually, Haas' granddaughter came across an online post about the suitcase full of letters. They have now been given to her.
