Brad Buecker of Lawrence recently looked over a malachite box, a gift from the people of Belgium to President Harry Truman. It holds nine soil samples from battlefields around Bastogne, Belgium, where American soldiers died. It’s one of the artifacts in a new exhibit at the Truman Library in Independence, “Till We Meet Again: The Greatest Generation in War and Peace.” The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 3, 2016, commemorates the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
