US Army soldiers stole her birthday cake during World War II. 77 years later, they give it back

American soldiers took a 13-year-old's birthday cake off of a window sill while celebrating a victory in Vicenza, Italy during World War II. 77 years have passed and the US Army is making amends.Source: CNN
Personal note: They took her 13th birthday cake back then.
The story was amended by the US Army with a new birthday cake on her 77 birthday.
That pretty remarkable - I wonder who dug up that story?

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
