He Was Just Looking For Extra Storage But What He Discovers in His Crawl Space Brings Him to Tears
They were looking for some extra storage space, but what they found was a mystery and a mission that hit very close to home.
As CBS DFW reports, Kerry Cremean and his wife, Cindy, had just bought a new home when a search of the crawl space in the garage uncovered something that brought Kerry to tears.

In a leather bag, seemingly untouched for decades, the Cremeans found a carefully folded American flag— the relic of the military burial for a Robert Allen Murray.
The ID and other information found in the bag told Kerry Cremean that Murray may have served in the Navy at about the same time that Kerry, a retired Army Sergeant, was in Vietnam.
“This was a forgotten member of the military,” Kerry told CBS DFW. “Someone needs to remember him.”
The shared military past wasn’t all that Kerry Cremean had in common with Murray, who died in a car accident in 1980.
