In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a marked down flag at a flea market has more value than one could ever suspect. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Nearly ten years ago, U.S. Marine Fred Maciel was killed in a helicopter crash in Iraq.
His surviving brothers-in-arms signed an American flag in tribute to him.
But then, the flag disappeared.
No one knew if it found its way home, and his family didn't even know it existed.
But last month, while a couple was shopping at a Texas flea market, they spotted the flag.
It was something that looked too special to be there, though the flag had been marked down because it had writing on it.
Walter Brown, whose son is a Marine, immediately recognized the flag's significance, and used the messages on it, and social media, to determine its owner.
"We realized it was a flag intended for a fallen Marine," Lanie Brown, Walter's wife, said. "We knew we had to take it home with us."
Then, in a special ceremony, the flag finally found its way home to Maciel's mother, Patsy.
There are about two dozen messages written on the flag.
One said, "We'll always remember the sacrifice you made," and another read, "Thank you for being who you were...Rest in peace."

Imagine if every person in the United States was subject to a computer hack. Now, multiply that figure - think 313 million - by four, and you have the victims of what could be the biggest heist of digital credentials ever.
A new report indicates Russian criminals stole 1.2 billion Internet user names and passwords from over 420,000 websites.
To boot, the security breach was not discovered by the United States government, but instead by a private, Milwaukee-based security firm.
Early reports from Hold Security, the company that identified the theft, indicate that the Russian crime gang was not seeking financial data.
Instead, they used the stolen usernames and passwords to generate spam posts on social media, peddling bogus products like weight loss pills.
The massive breach, albeit frightening, highlights the laissez-faire approach many take to personal online security, CNN's Poppy Harlow said on "New Day" Wednesday.
Harlow paraphrased the message Alex Holden, founder of Hold Security, told CNN MONEY: We keep our homes tidy but we don't keep our online lives tidy.
