    Someone put their flag (from a Military Funeral) in the back of my truck. When I found it, it was saturated so I unfolded it to dry it out. 3 spent casings fell to the ground (that's how I know it was from a Military Funeral). Once it dried, I refolded it and put the casings back inside. Anyone know what I should do with it now?

    Hi Knarf. Welcome to the forum.

    As a veteran, my first thought is to recommend taking the flag (including spent casings) to the nearest veterans organization (VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc). Tell the story about how these items came into your possession and ask for their advice. Good luck!

    Possibilities: Where were you? Do you drive by a cemetery? Perhaps someone absent mindedly put it on their car, then drove off and it fell off? Someone picked it up and thought it belonged to you because of (any marks/stickers on your truck)? I agree with the previous, about the Vets Orgs for advice. Good luck.
