A U.S. World War II veteran traveled to Australia to reunite with his wartime girlfriend after more than 70 years apart.

93-year-old Norwood Thomas and 88-year-old Joyce Morris laughed as they wrapped their arms around each other after Thomas flew from Virginia to Adelaide to reconnect with his long-lost love.

Thomas met Morris while he was serving with the 101st Airborne Division. He was stationed in England where Morris was living during the war. The two planned to marry, but the war and their lives afterward kept them apart.

After a simple internet search by Morris son, the two connected via Skype. After their story became international news, the reunion was planned, thanks to donations on a GoFundMe page and free plane tickets from Air New Zealand.

"This is about the most wonderful thing that could have happened to me," Thomas said after the touching reunion.

The two are reportedly planning to spend Valentine's Day together.
