A Tribute Long Delayed

I saw this interesting story out of Houston:

LCPL Fred Maciel was among 31 Marines killed in a helicopter crash in Fallujah in 2005.  He was laid to rest and the family (in Houston, TX area) received his effects...or at least they thought they did.

In Hemphill, Texas, a couple walking through a flea market spied an American flag with writing on it.  The wording:  tributes to Maciel by his platoon mates.

The couple ( Lanie Mae and Wally Brown ) undertook the search and found the Maciel family.  

The Initial Story

The flag was presented to the Maciels yesterday (Saturday  July 26)  at the cemetary where the fallen Marine is interred.
