A Tribute Flag For A Fallen Marine Found At A Flea Market Is Returned To His Mother 9 Years After His Death

Lanie Brown and her husband recovered the tribute flag of fallen Marine, Fred Maciel, earlier this month. The couple bought the flag at a local flea market for five dollars. Once returning home and inquiring about the flag with their own son, and fellow Marine, he informed them it was a tribute flag for a fallen brother. The flag was signed by Maciel's unit nine years ago, after his death. It's not known how this memento ended up where it did, but the Browns were able to immediately track down Patsy Maciel, Fred's mother, through Facebook and returned the flag to her.
