Skip to comments.State of Illinois trying to return 108 forgotten war medals to veterans, families
Posted on 05/26/2013 12:51:37 PM PDT by 1rudeboy
State Treasurer Dan Rutherford is asking people to take a moment over Memorial Day weekend to see if they recognize the names on a list of veterans whose military honors are held by the state.
Many of the items come from safe deposit boxes that have been forgotten. Banks eventually transfer the contents to the treasurer's office.
The veterans' names can be found at www.treasurer.il.gov.
Dan is also running for governor
Friends all over the state are encouraging his campaign and helping Dan celebrate his birthday.
We will be celebrating Dan’s birthday together as a family. I look forward to his reaction to all the support in response to this special birthday mailing.
Thank you. I know my brother appreciates you!

It will not be easy running for Governor, and my brother knows that. It will not be easy being Governor of Illinois, and my brother knows that. I hope you agree with me that he is up for both tasks!
