This letter is to express my disappointment and frustration with some disrespectful individuals in the Effingham area as they visit the Watson and Montrose cemeteries to steal from the graves of veterans buried there. In the past three years they have stolen seveal flags signifying military, sports teams and U.S. flags, as well as the holders for the flags.

It is disgraceful we are not able to honor our veterans who served our country – two of the four having given their lives -- for individuals lacking morals.

Should there be some policy prohibiting such action?
