Fallen Marine tribute finds its way home

(KPRC) The mother of a fallen Marine has received a special gift to remember her son, thanks to a Good Samaritan who found it at a Houston, Texas car wash.

Maj. Shawn Campbell was one of 12 members of the military killed last January when two helicopters crashed while on a training mission in Hawaii.

The gold necklace has his military picture on the front. On the back there is a gold star, with the inscription “Always In Our Hearts.” The Blue Star mother intended to present the necklace to Campbell’s mother, but somehow it got lost.
