U.S. Marine Gunnery Sergeant Greggory Jenkins
spent Saturday afternoon looking through old family photos and high school
medals, memories he thought were lost forever.
"To follow me across the world to make
sure these memories aren't lost from me, you can't put a price to it and you
can't put words do it," said Jenkins.

League Commandant Brian Crews says, a local woman called and found the
memorabilia among items purchased in an auction.
Crews says he
searched Jenkins on the internet in hopes of contacting him.
"I saw where he
had commented on a high school teacher that had died in a car accident and at
the bottom of that comment it said he was stationed in Japan," said Crews.
Crews says in a matter of hours he tracked him
down from his former base in Japan to where he is currently stationed in Baton
heartwarming to know that we could reunited a good marine with some personal
belongings that he thought was gone forever," said Crews,
Jenkins says many of
the medals and awards that were found are reminders of what got him started on
the path of leadership.
"To have another
Marine to come and do what Marines do, go back and take care of a marine,"
Crews says that's what marines are all about,
looking out for each other and freely offering service in a time of need.
Marines do, we take care of our own people and we knew that it was a chore that
we had to do and we were willing to do and very grateful to do," said
