Some people have no conscience, and can lay their heads down at night and sleep after they have done bad things. I honestly don't understand it.
I agree I hope they are really punished good for this.
Forget about slapping them on the wrist take the flat of a sword to their butts and then give hard labor for say about 300 years.
The people that did this needs to have their hands cut off or worse.
The plaques really do need to be found and fast.
no from of punishment is good enough for these bozos they should have their hands cut off first then let the military have them so they cannot fight back don't want anybody in the military to get hurt do we. After the military get finished with them then take and give them a nice dip in some nice warm bronze and then put them on show and tell people what happened to these will also happen to any one else who steals items like these.
Sorry but people that take plaques that have this type of value in my book do not deserve to live outside a prisons walls, when these people are caught then the VFW should have a say in the disposition of them that would only be fair. A good bull whipping might do them some good might remove a little flesh but that will grow back.
