MAY 19, 2014-- American Legion Post 237, in Union City, reported to State Police on Monday that many of the veteran markers they set up as a memorial at Evergreen Cemetery have been stolen. With Memorial Day just a few days away the VFW sets up more around 1,000 of the memorial grave markers. American Legion Post 237 officials say they have had a few stolen in the past but never to this extreme. They have a Civil War Memorial with veteran’s graves surrounding it and all of those markers were stolen. They believe someone is intentionally taking these markers. Police are continuing to investigate.
