Man Finds WWI Medal From New Jersey On Pulaski Co. Farm

A man chopping trees in Pulaski County made quite a discovery in the dirt recently.

James Dodson was working on his farm when he noticed something sticking up out of the ground. He picked it up, thinking it was some odd green piece of glass. But when he took it home and his wife cleaned it up, he discovered it was a WWI medal.

The inscription reads: "Presented by the City of Perth Amboy to the boys who answered the call of 1917."

Perth Amboy is a New Jersey town located near New York City.

Dodson said he contacted some officials in the military, along with the Perth Amboy library in an attempt to locate the person who received the medal.
