Jack Bennetts USMC

We are so proud to salute the troops here on this show. And we love to see stories like this the one: where another person shows a troop the honor and respect that they’ve earned. Today we salute Jack Bennetts of the United States Marine Corps. This story starts a few hundred miles from Jack’s home in Billings, Montana, when a 15-year-old kid named Wyatt Macy saw something shiny in his backyard and started digging. Wyatt uncovered a lost set of military dog tags and some Sergeant rank sleeve patches.
When he showed his find to his mother, she reached out to the local American Legion Post, and they located the rightful owner of these military treasures. Wyatt and his mother mailed the dog tags and the rank insignia to 84-year-old Jack Bennetts. Jack Bennetts served in the United States Marine Corps from 1953 – 1957. He doesn’t know how his tags got into the ground, but his mother had lived in the Macy’s house until 1982. Sergeant Bennetts says it means a lot to him that the Macy family took the time to find him, and says Mrs. Macy wrote him a beautiful letter thanking him for his service. Today we salute Jack Bennetts of the United States Marine Corps.

We live in the land of the free, because of the brave!
