OK family seeks the return of WWII memorabilia

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- An Oklahoma family is hoping for a miracle when it comes to finding a piece of World War two history.

Navy veteran Ike Franklin, 93, is getting ready to move from Oklahoma City to Ohio to be closer to family. In preparation, he accidentally put his old uniform in a donation box with other clothing and shoes he was trying to get rid of.

Now his family, especially his grandkids, are hoping to get it back.

"I think my mother kept it. Mothers are kind of sentimental,” said Franklin.

His family has contacted the recycling company and filed a report. But, since it's been several days, the uniform could have been sent to other parts of the country.
