Military officials and state historians are baffled by the discovery of a commemorative plaque marking the 250th anniversary of the Pennsylvania National Guard.
The bronze plaque was found in field near Hershey three months ago and turned over to Fort Indiantown Gap, where officials have been trying to find the rightful owner.
Pennsylvania National Guard Military Museum has contacted battlefield parks such as Valley Forge, Gettysburg and Antietam, but none seem to be missing a 75-pound marker dedicated in 1997 in memory of Pennsylvania service members buried in unmarked graves.
"It might have been abandoned. It might have been stolen," said Charlie Oellig, curator of the Pennsylvania National Guard Military Museum. "We don't know. That's what we're trying to find out."
Anyone with information may contact the museum at 861-2464.
