An American soldier met the love of his life at a dance in post-war England. He couldn’t stop thinking about her, but only had her name and one other clue to go on. This was the 1940s, decades before Facebook stalking. So, Chester deGavre used his Army skills -- and every free weekend he had -- to track down the woman of his dreams.
Watch the video above for Chester & Tita’s amazing love story. And see how Chester came to Tita again, decades later, on Stories of Courage: Posts from the Homefront, hosted by Robin Meade this Memorial Day, May 26 at 7 p.m. ET only on HLN.
