Two brothers, Michael and Mauro Mazzariello found several military medals in a local collectibles shop, and began a search for the veteran that they had originally been awarded. After some time, their search led them to Charles George, a young soldier who sacrificed himself to save the other men in his platoon. In 1952 during the Korean War, Charles George was killed in action when dived on a live grenade to absorb the damage and save his fellow soldiers. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his sacrifice along with several other medals. Michael and Mauro Mazzariello found George’s Purple Heart Medal, his Bronze Star and GCM in an antique shop. The owner gave the medals to the two boys after they promised to track down the original owner and return them.
