Tahoma National Cemetery supporters raising money for stolen plaques

Veterans upset by the November theft of 11 memorial plaques from the Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent are raising money to replace them.

The brass plaques along a memorial walkway gave cemetery visitors a chance to learn a little about the units in which deceased veterans served, such as the 10th Mountain Division. They were donated to the cemetery by service groups.

“They were trying to leave a little piece of history for their grandkids,” said cemetery director Jim Trimbo.

He estimated that the plaques would cost $20,000 to replace. He said it would cost at least $3,000 to install them if police recover the plaques.

The Tahoma National Cemetery Support Group is leading the fundraising drive. People with questions can call Trimbo at 425-413-9614.

Donations can be sent to:

    My brother is buried at Tahoma National Cemetery. I hope police find the low-life scum responsible for desecrating a national cemetery. Low-lifes will never join the military but will destroy anything they can get their hands on. I hope they do prison time when caught. If possible, I’ll show up at the trial and ask the judge to impose prison.
