NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Tucked in the back of the Goodwill Store sits Patty Fraser, a worker with a job she'd never want to trade.

Sifting through donated jewelry, Fraser comes across all sorts of strange items to sell on Goodwill's online site.

One day last week, under the clump of battered beads, plastic pearls and tangled earrings, Fraser uncovered a little treasure.

"I saw three military medals, and usually I throw them away because they don't belong to anyone," Fraser said, "No name, there is nothing I can do."

But Fraser dug a little deeper. She found dog tags with the name John Teegarden inscribed on them and a pocket watch to match.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
