How would you explain ‘marched through’ in the context? Nick (a vet ) was located at last, carrying a loaf of bread and his wrapped-up son of about the same size. He tried to wave, looking as if he might drop one or the other. Bull’s Eye went loping to catch him. He loves Nick’s stories of riflemen and trenches and gas and men going blind in the war. The Argonne is a fantastic story these men all marched through together, and in the end it led here. How would you explain ‘marched through’ in the context? Thanks!

The Argonne refers to the Battle of the Argonne Forest in World War I. The protesting soldiers marched through, or experienced that battle together.

Short answer: experienced. The Argonne refers to a specific battle in WWI. The battle is named after a forest. So in this context, "the Argonne" refers to both the battle and the forest. So the men (a) "marched through" (as in "marched through the Argonne Forest") and/or (b) in the case of The Battle of the Argonne, the men "experienced" or "went through" or "marched through" the battle together.
