A Purple Heart, earned by a fallen Upstate soldier in World War II, has been returned to his family 70 years later.
The piece was found last October, rattling inside a record player bought at the Anderson Jockey lot.
The finder wanted to find the rightful heirs to Sgt. James Carithers' honor, so he searched online and found a website, Genealogytrails.com. Folks there connected him to an Upstate high schooler. Seventeen year-old Andrew Staton made the connection.
