Florida couple discovers, returns WWII veteran’s keepsakes to family
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One Florida couple found some important items belonging to a World War II veteran and vowed to get them to their family member if possible, News 6 partner News4Jax reports. “I found the flag; she found the family,” Lloyd Hyatt said of his wife, Melissa. Lloyd Hyatt, a veteran himself, knew the flag was oddly placed and didn’t belong in that shop. Melissa Hyatt reached out to several of Smith’s family members via Facebook to try and connect with them to get the items to their rightful owners. And we were so glad that didn’t happen,” Lloyd Hyatt said.
