Organizational Medallions

Besides military medallions that identify veterans, there are medallions that identify deceased members of various organizations like the Elks, the American Legion, the VFW Auxiliary, and Gold Star Mothers. These memberships made people feel special and purposeful in life, so they want that identity known in death as well. It could be said that these medallions are a form of advertising and recruitment! They certainly are an expression of pride in the organization to which the departed member belonged.
