Thieves steal plaques from Md. VFW post

By Washington Post editors

Thieves have stolen five bronze plaques honoring veterans from the VFW post in Morningside, Md., NBC 4 reports.

Members of the VFW post say the missing plaques contain the names of more than 600 members who have died since the 1950s. Officials at the post say it will be difficult to replace the plaques since there are no records of the names that were listed.

To learn more about the missing plaques, go to NBC 4.

And over the years, nobody has ever photographed the plaques close up?
