Intrepid kids return WWII army helmet to owner’s family
by Alec Patton
My friend Jo Pugh (responsible for the @UKwarcabinet twitter feed) passed this along to me:
Last year, class at the Vineyard Christian Home School Co-op in Boise, Idaho, tracked down the family of the owner of a WWII army helmet that their teacher had been given for his birthday in 1971, from the identification written inside it: ‘A.J. Malone, Co ‘H’ 16th med. Reg’t, Ford Devens, Mass.’
The school only meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays – students are home-schooled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.As chief blogger Colin Mansfield observes, ‘this format allowed for prolonged research at home.’
