Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The KY State Treasury is seeking the owners of these military decorations that were left in a safety deposit box at South Central Bank in Bowling Green, Kentucky before they were transferred to the Kentucky State Treasury. The names on the account are Jeremy and Karla Segur of Smiths Grove, Kentucky.
These decorations indicate that the original owner served in the U.S. Army in World War II, was stationed in the U.S. for part of the war, participated in four of the 19 European campaigns, and remained in Europe during the post-war occupation. The decorations include, from left to right: Army Good Conduct Medal, American Campaign Medal, European - African - Middle Eastern Campaign Medal (with four bronze campaign stars), World War II Victory Medal, and World War II Occupation Service Medal.
The Kentucky State Treasurer administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property Fund. Unclaimed property consists of unclaimed safety deposit boxes and other assets that have remained unclaimed by their owners after several years. Treasurer Allison Ball has returned a record amount of unclaimed property since taking office at over $77.5 Million returned.
If these items belong to you, or if you have any information regarding this family or family members, please contact the Kentucky State Treasury to claim at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-564-4722.
