With all of the chaos taking place lately in Springfield, one office that has been able to bring good things to Illinois citizens is the Illinois Treasurer's Office. The office currently has a program where they attempt to return items left in safety deposit boxes to their owners or their family's owners, and has managed to return several war medals to those veteran's families.


Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs says the program his office runs was able to return another purple heart medal to it's recipient's daughter.



Frerichs says his office still has many more medals to return, and urged Central Illinois residents to check the Treasurer's Office Website to check if they have any items that have been left behind.



Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
