Rutherford bronze star

Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford returns a Bronze Star to Mt. Vernon resident Tommy Fenton, who earned it in a classified operation in South America. Fenton’s Bronze Star was in a safety deposit box in a Mt. Vernon bank, where it was sent to Springfield as unclaimed property. It was returned to Fenton through Operation Reunite, which seeks to locate veterans whose medals or dog tags have been misplaced.
