Outrageous Father of Fallen Marine Searches for Stolen Flag: 'It Means Everything to Us'
The father of a fallen Marine made a plea for help on "Fox & Friends" to help him find a sentimental flag stolen from his car in April.
The flag is signed by every member of Lance Cpl. Joe Jackson's platoon, and it was draped over his bed before he went on his last patrol in Afghanistan.
Jackson's father, Shawn Marceau, posted a photo of the flag to his Facebook on May 4, asking for anyone to share it in hopes of eventually finding it.
Marceau said that the flag was stolen from his car, which had been broken into shortly before the yearly memorial held for his son.
"I was very upset," he said. "I'm in a rage, and then disappointment because I lost it."
Lance Cpl. Jackson was killed in 2011 at age 22 by an improvised bomb in the Helmand province of Afghanistan.
"I know this is a last-ditch effort but it means everything to us," his father said on Tuesday. Marceau added that he used the flag as a "talking point" or "icebreaker" when talking to young veterans.
"They can relate. It helps them open up a little bit," he said.
