Marine Medal still missing from Oneida Castle grave

The Marine Medal at the grave of Jeremy Lasher, killed in Afghanistan, is still missing.

Family members are still hoping a Marine Corps medallion will be returned, to be put on the Oneida Castle grave marker of Lance Corporal Jeremy Lasher, killed in action in Afghanistan.

Lasher's mother says the medallion was put on the headstone three years ago by her son-in-law, who was with Lasher when he was hit by an improvised explosive device in 2009.

Vicky Arnold noticed the silver dollar-sized medallion was there on Memorial Day, but missing the next day, from the Oneida Castle Cemetery.

State Police are also investigating, and anyone with information (or the medal) can call 366-6000.
