JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina woman is frantically trying to find mementos she mistakenly sold that had belonged to her husband, a Marine killed while serving in Iraq.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reports (http://bit.ly/n3Rn2q) that Lindsay Whitehouse said she sold a suitcase Aug. 6 at a yard sale. The couple who bought it said they planned to resell the suitcase at an in-state flea market.

After they left, Whitehouse realized the suitcase contained awards, memorial items and photographs belonging to her husband, 27-year-old Staff Sgt. Jason Whitehouse. He was killed in action in 2007. The suitcase also contained family photos.

Whitehouse says photographs like those of her children and their father are irreplaceable. Her children, Aaron and Haylie, were 7 and 4 years old when their father was killed.
