Letters: Legion thefts no thanks for vets

Dear Editor,

I am beyond angry!  What kind of individual steals from the Royal Canadian Legion?

Branch 265 in Aldergrove has been the target of several break-and-entry thefts over the years. Most recently, the television that was put in the outside smokers’ lounge has been stolen twice, in just a short while, along with the cabinet it was placed in for “safekeeping.”

In addition, someone stole all the Christmas decorations that were placed out there to pretty up the place!

As many know, the Legion was founded as a place of social refuge for veterans of several wars that were fought for maintaining the freedoms we enjoy today. 

Is this the way to thank them?

There’s a special place in hell for this sort of individual. Shame on you!

Wayne Boylan, Aldergrove
