Wanted: Lost military medal owners SPRINGFIELD – On Memorial Day weekend, Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford asked Illinois residents to take a moment to check the official list of names with the Operation Reunite program. Operation Reunite is a program that strives to link veterans and their families with any unclaimed military medals, awards and military artifacts that have been transferred to the treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division. Rutherford launched Operation Reunite in 2011, shortly after taking office. “This week I had the pleasure of returning a Purple Heart to an honored Illinois veteran’s grandson. We have given back several military medals, but we still have 108 medals in our vault waiting to be claimed,” said Rutherford. “Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity to visit our website and check to see if you have any friends or family that may appear on our Operation Reunite list. It is my goal to return each and every one of the medals and awards that belong to these veterans or their heirs.” The list of names is printed on the Operation Reunite brochure, which can be found at Most notably in the past year, Rutherford returned two Purple Hearts to a woman in Rockford whose family earned the medals, and returned a Bronze Star to veteran Tommy Fenton of Mount Vernon, meaning two families now have their loved one’s honors in their hands. Other military medals the treasurer’s office has in its custody include, but are not limited to, Purple Hearts, Bronze Stars, a Navy Cross, and a Spanish American War Medal. “It is quite a challenge to track down those who

own these medals. If anyone recognizes a name on the list, please let us know,” said Rutherford. “While we typically have cities connected to the names of most medal owners, and perhaps even a last known address, enough time has passed that the address is no longer valid. Receiving a tip about a veteran’s new address or the whereabouts of the veterans’ families would likely allow us to reunite these medals with the rightful owners.” The email address for the Unclaimed Property Division is info@Icash.Illinois. gov or they can be contacted at 217-785-6998. The vault located beneath the Illinois State Capitol contains thousands of lost or forgotten valuables, including nearly 200 military artifacts, which includes medals, belonging to the men or women who have dutifully served our country. The valuable military awards span more than a century of American conflict, including one medal that dates back to the Spanish American War, circa 1898. Other priceless items include service records, dog tags and commendations from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The Illinois State Treasurer’s Office came to be the caretaker of these military artifacts after they were lost or forgotten. Often, a veteran of the armed forces or a family member has stored these objects in a bank’s safe deposit box and forgotten about them over time. Banks eventually relinquish stewardship of the contents of these boxes to the treasurer’s office. The treasurer then serves as the custodian for these items, storing and protecting them in the state vault under the Capitol until they may be reunited with whom they rightfully belong.

Don’t get scammed when donating to tornado victims CHICAGO — In the wake of a tragedy, scammers like to rise and take advantage of kind, giving people. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Chicago and Northern Illinois (BBB) is alerting consumers of the possibility of phony charity scams related to the Oklahoma tornado. “Tragedies bring people together and inspire many to help out by giving,” said Steve J. Bernas, president/ CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “Unfortunately, the aftermath of natural disasters is also a time when scammers find ways to take money from good people.” The BBB recommends asking the following questions before choosing to donate to a specific charity: • Is this a charity I can trust? Look at the appeal carefully; some charities have similar sounding names. Don’t be fooled by names that look impressive or that closely resemble the name of a well-known organization. Check with your appropriate state government authorities (this is usually a division of the state’s office of the attorney general) to verify the charity is registered to solicit in your state. Also, visit the website of the BBB Wise Giving Alliance at www. to find out whether a national charity meets the 20 BBB charity standards that address charity governance, finances, fundraising, donor privacy and other accountability issues. • How will the charity use my donation? Ask questions about how your donation will be used. Beware of appeals that bring tears to your eyes but give few details of what the charity is doing about the problem it describes so well. For example, if the charity says it’s helping the homeless, do they explain how (shelter, food, medical care) and where this is taking place? • Watch out for statements such as “all proceeds will go to the charity.” This can mean that only the money left after expenses, such as the cost of written materials and fundraising efforts, will go to the charity. These expenses can sometimes be high, so check carefully. • Is my donation tax deductible? If you want to take a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes, make sure the organization is tax exempt as a charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. A charity appeal will usually include a reference to this. To verify

a charity’s tax status, access an IRS database of organizations by viewing Publication 78 on the IRS website at Consult your tax advisor for details. • Can the charity actually use what I’m donating? All charities welcome the receipt of monetary donations, but some also solicit in-kind donations such as clothing, food and toys. If you’re planning to donate items to a worthy cause, make sure you know the in-kind contributions your charity prefers. For example, a food bank may prefer food items that are not perishable such as canned goods. • Am I feeling pressured to give? Don’t succumb to pressure to give money on the spot, either immediately over the phone via credit card or by allowing a “runner” to pick up a contribution. Take the time to research the charity fully; the charity that needs your money today will welcome it just as much tomorrow. The BBB is asking anyone who receives a suspicious charitable solicitation to report it to the BBB Report a Scam. For more advice on giving and to view reports on charities, visit www.
