Cardinals win Game 2 of NLCS
Albert Pujols had one of the biggest postseason nights of his career in Game 2 of the NL championship series, going 4 for 5 with a home run, three doubles and five RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 12-3 last night.
Missouri Treasurer Clint Zweifel unveiled two World War I military medals today at the Missouri State Museum.
The medals, a Distinguished Service Cross and Croix de Guerre, were handed over to Zweifel as unclaimed property when they were found in a bank safe deposit box.
The medals belonged to Major Ernest W. Slusher. Margaret Means, a member of Slusher’s family, is in the process of seeing if she is the lawful owner of the medals.
So, who was Maj. Ernest W. Slusher? And how did he earn these medals? Zweifel explains in a release:
The Missouri House has passed legislation to limit where and when funeral protesters can demonstrate.
The action comes despite this week’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that threw out a lawsuit against a fundamentalist church that holds protests at military funerals.
