      Returning medals to Missouri's brave ones


      The

      Missouri Treasurer Clint Zweifel

      says his office holds over 80

      unclaimed military medals

      .


      Now new legislation that would help identify the owners of these lost honors is waiting for

      Governor Jay Nixon's

      signature.


      The measure give the state treasurer's office the ability to make public photos of the medals along with descriptions of how they were earned.


      Since January of 2009, 40 medals have been returned to their rightful owners of their families.
