Obviously don't know for sure with the limited info from the article, but more than likely a WWII vet passed and his family was unsure what to do with it.

Last I heard a quoted number, we are losing 1,000-1,500 WWII vets a day. As that's happening, a lot of their war mementos are winding up in the trash, estate sales, or what I prefer to see, being handed down to the next generation. Biggest problem is a lot of the next 2 generations don't have the appreciation for the historical significance of these mementos.
