In 2014 A Man Bought A Tribute Flag At A Flea Market And Returned It To The Dead Vet’s Family

One day, Walter Brown was looking through a flea market when something caught his eye. Then he spotted a United States flag that had some writing on it. As he looked closer, he could hardly believe what he was seeing – and he knew that this was no ordinary star-spangled banner.

Brown and his wife Lanie live in Beaumont, Texas. They have a daughter named Catie Shafer and are familiar with the United States Marines. Brown previously served his country, as did their son and son-in-law.
