Veteran's Keepsakes are Cause for Concern

Twin Falls, Idaho A southern Idaho family was looking through an elderly relative's belongings when they were shocked to find two WWII-era grenades. One was found inside a shadow box and the other mixed in with other memorabilia belonging to the 94-year-old veteran.

The man's son-in-law did some research and decide to report to find to authorities, according to the Twin Falls Police Bomb Squad. The grenade in the shadow box was determined to be inert, but the other was deemed live. The Mountain Home Air Force Base EOD team was called in to detonate the ordnance at a local landfill.
