Goodwill looking to return donated Purple Heart

Job Board

TUCSON, Ariz. (WFLA/CNN) – A Goodwill store is looking for the owner of a Purple Heart medal.

The medal was found in the Tucson, Arizona thrift store’s donation box last month.

The name Nick D’amelio Junior is engraved on it.

He was a seaman in the Navy who went missing in action during World War II.

The Purple Heart was awarded posthumously sometime later and now the store would like to return the medal to the veteran’s family.
