New Homeowner Shocked By What He Finds in Garage Crawl Space

In Texas, a veteran was shocked to find a military burial flag within the crawl space in the garage of his new home. Kerry Cremean and his wife, Cindy, had just purchased a new home in River Oaks, Texas. He decided to look for storage space and examined the crawl space--what he saw brought him to tears. He said “It’s like I’m holding someone’s life. “Just like it came off the casket and was folded in his honor; it’s wonderful." Along with the flag was a leather bag that belonged to Robert Allen Murray, a Fort Worth, Texas, native who was 29 at the time the photo on his Armed Forces ID was taken.

Cremean believes Murray might have served in the Navy around the same time that he was fighting in Vietnam. Cremean added “This was a forgotten member of the military. Someone needs to remember him." The couple went to Facebook to try to reunite the sentimental items with his family. Documents found in the leather bag gave the Cremeans some vital information needed to find Murray’s surviving family — the names of his three daughters. They’re now hoping social media can help them find the girls, who were all under 10 years old when their father died in a car accident in 1980. The three girls’ names are Joyce, Elizabeth and Kerry. Facebook even gave Cindy the opportunity to make a letter to Murray's widow.
