A Texas couple made a surprising find during a recent visit to a flea market.

Lanie Mae and Wally Brown were looking through a stack of used flags, when one of them caught their eye.

According to Yahoo News:

“I was shocked to see dedications from Marines all over this flag to a lance corporal named ‘Fred,’” Lanie Mae writes in a Facebook message.

“While scouring the many heartfelt messages to this young man, simultaneously we saw ‘RIP Fred’ and again, simultaneously we said, ‘we have to get this flag to his mama.’”
