The American Legion Post in Bisbee recently re-opened after not having a home for several years. When the old Post closed, lots of stuff was just packed in boxes and put in storage.
This spring, much of the stuff was opened and examined for the first time in years.
One of the boxes had a framed letter of accommodation from the Arizona Governor to a local woman for evidently saving another woman's life in a fire. No one knew the woman or knew why the plaque was in storage.
One of the members did some detective work and located the woman's daughter. She knew the story of the fire but had no idea her mother got the award. It turns out her mother was alive and would be visiting town this week so the Legion held a ceremony honoring her and presenting her with her long-lost award.
