Lost Medals

If you know a veteran, you may want to take a minute to see if they’ve lost a war medal.  The state has possession of more than 100 medals and they’re looking to return them to their rightful owners.  One of the medals belongs to a veteran who served in the Spanish American War, dating all the way back to 1898.  Other items include a Navy Cross, Bronze Star, and Purple Hearts.  To see the names of the veterans, check out Treasurer.IL.gov.
