George Berry of Medford, Ore., only wanted to buy a historic 1911 pistol, but wound up getting far more than he had sought. After purchasing a pistol at auction, he did some digging into the name engraved on the side and found it belonged to living Medal of Honor recipient John McGinty. McGinty had reported it stolen in 1978.
Berry returned the pistol to McGinty and asked for nothing in return.
