A representative for the Nevada Office of Veterans Services reacted to the published reports Wednesday, telling FOX5 the organization is “devastated" by what happened.
I wasn't sure whether to put this here or in Three Things, the guy hasn't been charged with anything (yet.)
It doesn't matter that the headstones were (supposedly) no longer used because they had they wrong information on them, not only is it theft but it's incredibly disrespectful to our country's heroes and their families. One time when I went out to visit my grandfather at a civilian cemetery, his headstone had been shoved to the side all crooked by workers digging a grave near him. I hit the roof and nearly had someone's head, you bet your ass I had the caretaker apologizing up and down and putting it back into place the very next day. I can't imagine how I would feel if I found out something like this had happened, my head would probably explode from the disbelief and incomprehension. This employee needs to be charged and fired, and he needs to return the headstones which now make up his patio... twisted asshole.
