Sean Marceau, father of fallen Marine Joe Jackson, is asking for his son’s American flag to be returned after it was stolen by an unknown perpetrator.

Marceau said Tuesday the flag, along with other items, was stolen from his truck back in April. Jackson was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan back in 2011.

“We have a memorial every year. And leading up to it I was looking for his flag — my car was broken into before that,” Marceau said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “I started frantically looking and I couldn’t find it. I told my wife. So we went to the memorial. After that I kept looking and I said ‘Oh, no. It was in the truck.'”

Marceau said losing the flag enraged him and is asking anyone with knowledge of where it might be to come forward.


Marceau lives in central Washington and encouraged locals to check pawn shops and goodwill stores in case someone tried to barter the flag.

“Look in pawn stores. Look in Goodwills, whatever. Whatever second-hand store you have that might be there. I know this is a last-ditch effort but it means everything to us,” he concluded.

“It means everything to the 17 that were killed in that deployment. It means everything to all those 190 that were wounded that time. It doesn’t just affect me it touches as lot of people. Especially my family but a lot of the Marines that served with Joe … They would like it back.”
