Words from the Past, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Caption: Picture of a World War One soldier wearing a medal for bravery for fighting in the Argonne in France.
 
2     Henry had ceased to think about the oppressive darkness of the basement while he thought about the long-hidden items in the trunk. He couldn't wait to get a good look at the medals and see what was in the box Mom carried.
 
3     They sat down at the kitchen table together and put their prizes down. Henry opened the first box and recognized it right away. It was a purple heart. Then he opened the other two but did not recognize them.
 
4     Henry pushed them over for his mother to see.
 
5     "Do you know what medals these are?" he asked.
 
6     Mom shook her head. "No, but this one might be French. The words appear to be in that language."
 
7     "Would you mind if I got online to research them?" he asked.
 
8     "I think that would be a great idea. Before you do, though, I would like you to see these."
