Veteran’s lost medals returned by Louisiana Treasury


(WGMB) (WVLA)-Baton Rouge, LA Thanks to a new initiative by the Louisiana State Treasury Department, veterans across the state and their families are being reunited with military medals they thought they’d never see again. Medals and documents held in safe deposit boxes or other depositories — and unclaimed for more than five years after the lease period expires — will be turned over to the treasury’s unclaimed property division.
