Fraternal ribbon composed of brass pin, gray silk, and celluloid medallion. The Sons of Veterans was an Allied Order of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Union soldiers' veterans organization. This ribbon was given to all attendees of the Kansas Department's annual encampment at Chanute in 1897. The man pictured on the medallion is Clay D. Herod, past division commander. The donor (Grant Harrington) was a member of the Sons of Veterans, General Crook Camp No. 169 of Hiawatha. He probably acquired this ribbon while attending the encampment for which it was issued.
