You may have items waiting in a safe you didn’t even know you owned.
Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs describes how his office is reuniting possessions with their rightful owners. Frerichs is most focused on returning service medals.
Frerichs has a couple stories of veterans or family members of veterans reuniting with a Purple Heart medal.
Another situation occurred where the daughter of a Korean War veteran had no clue her father received a Purple Heart.
The State Treasurer’s office even returns money from unclaimed life insurance policies.
