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.
