Two days after D-Day a US soldier by the name of Jack Leroy Tueller found himself scared and lonely.

Despite his commanding officer's warning of a German sniper in the area, Jack got out his trumpet and started to play. Thinking the soldier was likely as lonely and as scared as he was, Jack decided to play him his love song.

The next morning, a Jeep came up the beach carrying German prisoners on their way to England. One of the prisoners kept asking in broken English, "Who played that trumpet last night?"

When Jack motioned it was him the German soldier said, "When you played that song, I thought of my fiancé and I couldn't fire."

Jack then shook the hand of the enemy.
