Memorial Day Celebration

Today’s writing prompt is in honor of Memorial Day and all those who have served and died while on active duty in the United States military.

You and your spouse just bought a new home in the country. The two of you are exploring the attic when you find a dusty old trunk in the corner. When you open it, you find a folded U.S. flag, a Purple Heart tucked in a black box, a worn military dress jacket, and an old black-and-white photo of a man wearing that same military jacket. You want to return the items, so you begin to search for their rightful owner. What do you find?
