Money from wiring was to help vets | Letters


On behalf of Whitehead-Muzzall Post No. 7392, Veterans of Foreign Wars, I would like to thank the person or persons unknown, who chose to break into one of our storage units and remove approximately 1,000 pounds of assorted wiring.

It took us 10 months to collect it, sort it, and get it ready for recycling.

You undoubtedly need the money more than our veterans do.

We’ll find a way to replace that scholarship money, the emergency funds for a veteran in distress or any of the other ways that this money is used to benefit veterans.

For the rest of you honest people, if you see a vehicle driving around with multiple blue barrels stuffed with old Christmas tree lights, used household wiring and miscellaneous scrap wiring, please let the sheriff’s department know at 360-678-4422. They have the case number.

We now have plenty of storage room and would gladly accept any and all donations — everything from old Christmas tree lighting to extension cords to old power tool cords.

Skip Johnson, post adjutant
