DENVER – A military mom is heartbroken after she mailed her deployed son a family treasure, only to have it go missing the mail.
Donna McNulty, a retired police officer, said she wanted her son, Grant, to have the American flag that belonged to his late grandfather, also a serviceman.
“So he would have a piece of my dad with him while he was deployed,” McNulty said. “I packaged it up, put it in a care package and sent it off along with several other items.”
McNulty said she sent two boxes to her son more than a month ago, and just recently found out neither arrived. She checked U.S. Postal Service tracking information online, and found one of the boxes was bouncing between Aurora and Denver.
