Treasurer Lynn Rogers Working to Reunite Military Items
TOPEKA – In honor of Veterans Day, State Treasurer Lynn Rogers wants to recognize veterans by seeking to reunite military medals, awards, and insignia with their families.
“This is one small gesture that my office can make to thank the men and women that have faithfully served our country by reuniting families with what I believe are priceless family heirlooms,” said State Treasurer Lynn Rogers.

“We currently have identified nearly 100 pieces of military items and want to get it returned to its rightful owners,” said Rogers.
