World War Two veteran Stanley Krzywonos of North Carolina was brought to tears after receiving a hand-made thank you card from a local nine-year-old girl.

Krzywonos was given the card from Hannah Byon on the bus ride home after a "D-Day Honor Trip" to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day last week.

Krzywonos was so moved by the card that he asked for it to be put with him after he dies so he can keep it forever.
