A fourteen year old boy named Tyler, found a mortar while he was doing yard work at his family's home. He took a picture of the object and called his mom. Mom went to the local authorities and showed the picture to them. The police sent out the bomb squad and they dealt with the situation. They decided it was inert and took it away to give to the right authorities for disposal.
My guess is that this will be a summer story Tyler will talk about for the rest of his life. Click here to find out more about it.
For you history buffs, this was a fun find.
