When he was wounded in combat, his closest ally broke ranks and defied orders to get him away from the front line.

** A Japanese-American soldier who named Mitchell Shigemoto faced prejudice from members of his own unit during UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, then found friendship with the black troops. When he was wounded in combat, his closest ally ally, James "Jim" Pearson, broke ranks and defied orders to get him away from the front line. The two comrades never saw each other again until their story aired on ''Unsolved Mysteries'' and a viewer who was also a military veteran took it upon himself to reunite them. Aside from reuniting in paradise (Mitchell lives in Hawaii with his family), they were both so happy to find each other again and remain close to this day. Furthermore, not only was their story the 200th solved case, the image of them embracing even made it into the series' 1995-1998 intro.



** "We have also opted for a hostless format, because the late, legendary Robert Stack was a singular and irreplaceable presence," Unsolved Mysteries producer Shawn Levy said in a press release. "In Robert's absence, we are letting the spirit and the strength of the stories carry the narrative. Above all, our aspiration was to make a new chapter worthy of his memory and of iconic contribution to this iconic series." Aww.
* The friendship of Mitchell Shigemoto and James "Jim" Pearson. Both men were serving in UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar and the former, being Japanese, faced a lot of discrimination as a result with the latter being his only friend at the time and openly defended him. After getting injured in battle, Mitchell was saved by Jim and another soldier, but he was sent to recover at a hospital and the men fell out of touch until the night of the broadcast.

* The reunion between James P. "Jim" Meade Jr and Lt. Karen Stephens. Jim, an eighteen-year-old army helicopter pilot, was shot down and suffered severe injuries that left him with shattered legs, a fractured skull and an inability to walk or talk. Lt. Karen "Betty" Stephens was an army physical therapist and had to teach him how to eat, walk talk and do other physical tasks, starting with teaching Jim to crawl across mats. During one of these sessions some watching basic trainees laughed at Jim after he fell flat on his face several times. Lt. Stephens, infuriated, went right over to them, yelled at them and ordered them out of the room. One year after they met, Lt. Stephens left the army but her encouragement and dedication meant that Jim eventually regained all his motor skills and abilities. Lt. Stephens saw the broadcast, recognised Jim, found out that he was looking for her and they were reunited.

** Even more dramatic is the story of Logan Carroll, an infant who ''literally'' came back from the dead. His parents, Tami and Todd, had previously had a stillborn daughter, and at first it looked like Logan's life would end just as tragically: his heart stopped, no brain activity was detected, and he was pronounced dead at just 33 minutes old. 40 minutes later, Tami's stepmother was holding Logan when she noticed that he was getting warmer, and sure enough, doctors and nurses confirmed that he had somehow come back to life. His resurrection remains unexplained to this day, but the ''Unsolved Mysteries'' Wiki reports that Logan, although he suffered some brain damage from his brief death and is wheelchair-bound, is now (2020) 24 years old, healthy, and happy.

** A hearing-impaired woman named Patty was looking for her long-lost father. To wit, he was a loving man and great father to her, but unfortunately his time with her was limited as he was divorced from her mother, who had sole custody and she had remarried another man and both of whom were rather cold to the girl growing up, not even allowing the man to have visits with her at home or school.

* Speaking of miraculous and mysterious cures, one episode dealt with the small French town of Lourdes, where a teenaged girl named Bernadette Soubirous claimed to have seen the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1858. The spring waters in the baths at Lourdes are believed by many to possess miraculous powers. Two women who believed they were cured from terminal illnesses due to their pilgrimages to Lourdes were interviewed for the episode. A Frenchwoman, Jeanne Fretel, suffered from tubercular peritonitis and was so ill that doctors believed she would not survive a trip to Lourdes and advised her friends to take along a coffin. After taking Holy Communion[[note]]Many cures deemed "inexplicable" (eligible to be declared miracles) by the Lourdes Bureau -- a council of doctors 50% of whom must be atheists -- occur while/after taking Communion, or during the Blessing of the Eucharist, not while/after bathing in or drinking the water[[/note]] and being moved to the grotto where Bernadette's vision occurred, Jeanne was cured, and the local Archdiocese declared her case a miracle. An American teenager, Lorraine Echevarria, was stricken with an illness that made her so weak she couldn't lift her head and was causing her kidneys to shut down. At Lourdes, after having some of the water from the baths poured over her head, Lorraine awoke in the middle of the night and realized she felt hungry and was now able to walk. Lorraine also said she had a dream in which she was told she was being cured so she could tell others that "He [presumably Jesus] still exists."

* A "Sci-Med"/"Miracles" episode featured a baby girl who had a stomach blockage that was going to kill her before her first birthday. While her parents hoped for a miracle to save her while also preparing for the worst, around Christmastime in the middle of the night, her [[CoolUncle Uncle]] came by, sort of unexpectedly, said he was compelled to come by and asked to pray with the little girl. Her parents complied and after praying for her for a long time, the girl ended up being cured completely. Also, as a happy post note to the story, the show had received two photos of the now-''college-aged'' girl: one of her flashing a peace sign and the other one hugging her now-middle-aged mother who was featured in the segment.

* "Ghost Writer," where an elderly widow claims to have received a letter from her departed husband, who visited her oldest daughter one night. Even though it's almost beyond doubt --even to the credulous viewer-- that the daughter actually wrote the letter and not her late husband (the old woman treats the letter's use of her pet names as SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay, even though her kids would have had to hear their father call their mother "Tress" at some point, and even a ''stranger'' could have guessed "Sweetheart"), it's still an undeniably warm and fuzzy supernatural moment nestled between all the more frightening ghost tales on the show.
