Why would somebody do this?
That’s what a 96-year-old Canadian war veteran is asking after someone broke into his home and stole five World War II service and honour medals.
” I know what I’ve lost is irreplaceable. And I hope I get them back.”
Jack Miles says he has no idea who would steal his cherished medals and Surrey RCMP have yet to identify a suspect.
“Nobody can take away the fact that I did my duty. They can steal my medals and what they represent, but they can’t take away the fact that I was there.”
Miles says he hopes whoever took his property will put the medals and a framed certificate thanking him for his service in the RAF back in the mailbox of his house in the 142-hundred block of 56th Avenue in Surrey.
He’s also hoping media attention will help.
