ONEIDA CASTLE, N.Y. — A central New York woman is asking for the publicís help in finding a gold Marine Corps medallion that disappeared from her late sonís headstone in Oneida Castle Cemetery.
Vicky Arnold says she last saw the silver dollar-sized medallion on the base of her sonís headstone on Memorial Day. She discovered it missing when she returned to the cemetery the next day.
