"We're searching for the rightful owners of a bronze star, 7 navy medals, two purple hearts, numerous battle ribbons and campaign pins, dog tags and dozens of discharge papers including one from the Civil War!" stated Kentucky Treasurer Todd Hollenbach. "We owe it to our military service members to go the extra mile to return these items. Their stories deserve to be told, and their memories need to be preserved." Hollenbach added.
