Kara Troy (KT) Robbins is an American hero who served in World War II with the U.S. Army. During his service, he was stationed in France in 1944 where he fell in love with a beautiful woman, Jeannine Pierson. Pierson was 18 at the time and had a big heart for Robbins, a 24-year-old soldier. Robbins was sent to the Eastern Front to fight in the war which he survived. Great news for him and his family back home. That meant more responsibility was waiting for Robbins back in the U.S. Sometimes life does not work out the way we think. After the war, Robbins moved back to the United States and the precious lovers lost contact. Though they did not remain in person with each other, but their thoughts were never lost. Pierson stated, “When he left in the truck, I cried, of course, I was very sad. I wish after the war he hadn’t returned to America.” Of course, after their lives separated, life must go on.
Pierson longed to reconnect with Robbins and even learned English so they could better connect. She was hoping he would return back to France for her, but he didn’t. They both did get married, but to other people. He stayed in America with his wife and she stayed in France with her husband. They never forgot about each other though, and Robbins held on to her picture for 75 years! He hoped to see that cute little French girl he met over seas one day as he held on to her photo for so many years. After all of those years, Robbins lost his wife as she passed away. Not long after that, he was given the opportunity to return back to France where he hoped he would find Pierson again. However, being 98 years old, would mean Pierson is 92 and he knew she would have probably passed by now.
D-Day in Normandy, France is now approaching and Robbins is hoping to at least make some form of contact with Pierson’s family when he finds out she was indeed still alive! He spoke with a journalist and was given the chance to go see her in person. After her husband passed away, she waited on Robbins to return. And this time, he did! As happy as Robbins was he could hardly express his gratitude to the journalist who helped him come this far. Pierson was waiting for him with open arms and they wasted no time catching up and getting to know each other once again. It was like lovers separated for a while and reunited, as if nothing was missed. They were able to spend hours together in each others arms once again sharing hugs and kisses. After their time spent, it was time for Robbins to return home once again when he said, “Jeannine, I love you, girl.” As he left, he promised they would meet again but he would not dare wait another 75 years to return to her loving arms.
