Thief steals from vet

This is to the thief who stole my field camera, marine battery and case on Oct. 25 or 26 from my hunting area:

I spent over 30 years of my life in the Army defending this country so people like you could enjoy freedoms such as hunting and this is how you paid me back. In the military, we never had the privilege of living where my son and I could hunt but we do now.

As I am now unable to crawl up into a tree stand, he bought me this tripod you saw there.

For Christmas he gave me the field camera you stole.

You did not even respect the woods as in your haste to get away, you ran over, broke off and killed two little trees.

If you have a conscience and now realize what you have done, you can bring back what you stole from me and leave it outside the gate at 11512 Crystal Lake Road, Merrifield.
