Jacksonville Area! Please help!

Below is a message I got from my daughter today. She is a Combat Vet Navy Nurse and was fourth generation military in our family. The message is about a friend of hers. Please do anything you can to help find the AssHat who did this and find this kids backpack!!

Message from my daughter!!
One of my friends in Jacksonville had his backpack stolen out of his car last night. In that bag was a flag he's carried with him on every mission, every step he's taken around the world, used it as his comfort when he was wounded and when he's lost numerous friends in combat. There is now a reward out for it and the news is doing a story on the 10 o'clock news tonight.

i'll apologise for my neighbors. Jacksonville is very bad for this type thing. I watch two morning stations news and this is the first I've heard.

Here is a link to the news report. I apologize for not getting this out sooner. I got sick with the flu after the weekend and have been pretty much outta commission for several days.

Hey...... Just noticed you were Navy retired. I guess I shoulda but it together when we first chatted several years ago. I am ex Navy Nuke Sub Sailor. My daughter was fourth generation straight active duty and third generation straight Navy! She was the only O-ganger out of the lot of us though.
