A Maryland firefighter cherished the medals his parents gave him at the 2005 new graduation school graduation ceremony. He took it off on the beach and lost it in the summer of 2020.
However, he regained his valuable possessions almost a year later, thanks to the excellent Samaritan who combed the beach with a metal detector.
Prince George’s County Fire Commander Donnie Fletcher lost his medallion during his vacation at Outer Banks.
“It means the world to me. It was a gift,” he said. “It was what I worked hard to achieve.”
Fletcher decided to remove it and leave it on the shore after being warned that sharks could be attracted to the medallion of the necklace while swimming in the sea.
Then a wave came and wiped out everything he did, including the necklace.
“We spread 40 or 50 yards wide and 20 yards deep, and 10 or 11 people were digging,” he said.
I had no luck. Fletcher left Outer Banks without a necklace and eventually gave up finding it again.
Earlier this month, a man named Ken ASCII, who had a metal detector as a hobby for retirement, found a medallion about 50 miles from where he was lost.
He used the Medallion’s ID number to track Fletcher through the fire department. Askey and Fletcher recently talked about their findings in Zoom.
When Fletcher received the call, he said he had goose bumps.
“This hobby is worth it because you can find you and get your necklace back,” Asky said.
Fletcher said the experience was evidence that there are still good people in the world.
“It was like reuniting with an old friend,” he said. “I took it out, looked at it, put it back in, and I’m not going to take it off again.”
