Secondly is the Gold Star Mothers medal, given to all those travelling on the pilgrimage. A roster of all the pilgrimage participants is available on line, and this one traced out well. It was given to a Mrs. Minnie Wagner of Peoria, IL, mother of Pvt. Charles F. Wagner, Co. G, 7th Infantry, 3rd Division, who was KIA 10/11/18.
