In this Dec. 20, 2012 photo, Mary Helen Taft hold up a military jacket at her home in Zimmerman, Minn. She bought the jacket at a consignment shop about 20 years ago, and the story of a similar jacket found in the debris of Superstorm Sandy prompted her to learn more about this jacket's past. With the help of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Taft has learned that the 80-year-old tunic was once worn by 1971 West Point graduate Joseph Francis Albano. (AP Photo/Genevieve Ross)
